After You Return From Your Trip

If you are not feeling well after your trip, see a doctor and mention that you traveled recently.

If you have traveled to an area with Zika risk, take steps to prevent mosquito bites for 3 weeks after your trip. Even if you don't feel sick upon returning, take precautions so that you don't spread Zika to uninfected mosquitoes that can spread the virus to other people.

Be sure to use condoms for at least 8 weeks (women) or 6 months (men) after travel to an area with Zika risk to protect your sex partners from transmission.

If you traveled to an area with Zika risk and have a pregnant partner, use condoms correctly every time you have sex or do not have sex for the entire pregnancy.
