Zika Virus

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has set up a new webpage with information on Zika Virus, which is transmitted by certain mosquito species.  Although these species do not live in Colorado, there is concern of the spread of the virus if it is carried by persons who have traveled to the areas where the mosquitoes are common.  Places that have the virus-carrying mosquitoes include the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America, South America, and some Pacific islands.  If you or someone you know has recently traveled to these locations, check out the webpage for information on testing and prevention.
