  • Description:
    On August 1, 2016, CDC issued guidance for people living in or traveling to a 1-square-mile area of the Wynwood neighborhood in Miami, FL, identified by the Florida Department of Health as having mosquito-borne spread of Zika. On August 19, CDC also issued guidance for a 1.5-square-mile section of Miami Beach identified to have mosquito-borne spread of Zika; on September 17, this section was expanded to a 4.5-square-mile area.

    On September 19, CDC updated guidance for the Wynwood-designated area after three mosquito incubation periods passed without any new locally transmitted cases of Zika.

    On October 13, Florida announced a new area of mosquito-borne spread of Zika in an additional 1-square-mile area in Miami-Dade County, FL. Because local spread of Zika virus continues to be reported in Miami-Dade County, CDC updated its travel and testing guidance on October 19 to apply recommendations to all of Miami-Dade County.

    Red and Yellow Area Designation: CDC designates areas for Zika virus transmission prevention in the continental United States and Hawaii as red or yellow.

    • Zika active transmission area (red area): A geographic area where local, state, and CDC officials have determined that the intensity of Zika virus transmission presents a significant risk to pregnant women. The intensity of Zika virus transmission is determined by several factors including geographic distribution of cases, number of cases identified, known or suspected links between cases and population density.

    • Zika cautionary area (yellow area): A geographic area where local transmission has been identified, but evidence is lacking that the intensity of transmission is comparable to that in a red area. Although the specific level of risk in yellow areas is unknown, there is still a risk to pregnant women. Additionally, areas adjacent or close to red areas may have a greater likelihood of local Zika virus transmission and are considered to pose a risk to pregnant women.

    Currently, red areas include a 4.5-square-mile area of Miami Beach and a 1-square-mile area of Little River in Miami-Dade County, FL. The rest of Miami-Dade County is a yellow area.
