    You’ve just learned from your doctor or healthcare provider that you have a positive Zika test result, which means that you have Zika virus. During the first week of infection, Zika virus is in a person’s blood. If you and your partner are thinking about getting pregnant, you should wait. You should also protect yourself from being bitten by mosquitoes. While the virus is in your blood, a mosquito can bite you, get infected with Zika virus, and spread the virus to other people.

    Everyone who has Zika should take steps to protect themselves and others. This fact sheet explains what to do.
