Zika Virus information
Zika is caused by a virus that is spread to people through the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito. Since 2015 Zika has been identified in several countries and territories including Central and South America, Mexico, the Caribbean, Africa, and the Pacific Islands. All current cases of Zika are travel-associated meaning that a person with Zika became infected outside the U.S. in an area with ongoing Zika transmission and then traveled to the U.S. There is no known local transmission of Zika in New Jersey, which means that mosquitos in our area have not been infected with Zika virus. There have also been some reported cases of sexual transmission of Zika by a man to his sex partners.
