CDC has updated its interim guidelines for U.S. health care providers caring for
infants born to mothers who traveled to or resided in areas with Zika virus transmission
during pregnancy and expanded guidelines to include infants and children with possible
acute Zika virus disease. This update contains a new recommendation for routine care
for infants born to mothers who traveled to or resided in areas with Zika virus
transmission during pregnancy but did not receive Zika virus testing, when the infant has
a normal head circumference, normal prenatal and postnatal ultrasounds (if performed),
and normal physical examination.
