Thursday, February 4, 2016
DOH can confirm three (3) Zika cases in the District of Columbia; one (1) in 2015 and two (2) in 2016. These are all individuals who traveled outside of the United States. 
 
Region of Travel Destinations:
  •   2015 case: South America

“The DC Department of Health (DOH) is working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to monitor and track Zika virus infections in DC residents. It is important for residents to remember that there is no immediate threat to their health and well-being if they have not travelled to the known affected areas. However, we must all stay well informed and be cautious when traveling internationally. DOH has created a webpage that will be regularly updated, with a fact sheet on the Zika Virus and other key information to ensure that all DC residents are engaged and informed.”
