The news cycle has left Zika behind, but that doesn’t mean that the virus is no longer a threat. In fact, it still needs to be taken very seriously in the Caribbean, Mexico, and South and Central America. The CDC is clear on this. It even has a dedicated “Men and Zika” page, where it lists—among other things—what men can do to stop the spread of Zika during and after travel:
- “If you have a pregnant partner, she should not travel to areas with risk of Zika. See more information on precautions pregnant women should take.
- If you and your partner are planning a pregnancy, talk to your doctor or other healthcare provider before traveling to areas with risk of Zika.
- Because you can be infected and spread Zika to others without knowing it, it is important to take precautions even if you don’t have symptoms.
- There is no specific medicine or vaccine for Zika. But there are steps you can take to prevent Zika.”
Check out the CDC page for more, and stay vigilant.
