  • Description:
    Does not include guidance specific to U.S. territories

    Purpose: This document is intended to guide state public health leaders regarding actions to consider in developing Zika action plans for their states. This document may serve as a support tool for states as they develop a phased response to Zika virus in their jurisdictions.

    Guidelines for a Phased Response to Zika Virus: The objective of a phased, risk-based response using Zika virus surveillance data is to implement public health interventions appropriate to the level of Zika virus risk in a community, county, or state. An effective arboviral illness surveillance program and diagnostic testing algorithm that includes testing for Zika virus infection must be in place to recommend a phased response. Effective public health actions depend on interpreting the best available surveillance data and initiating prompt and aggressive intervention when necessary.
