CDC has updated its interim guidance for health care providers in the United States caring for
pregnant women with possible Zika virus exposure, based on emerging data indicating Zika
virus RNA can be detected for prolonged periods in some pregnant women. To increase the
proportion of pregnant women with Zika virus infection who receive a definitive diagnosis, this
guidance includes recommendations to expand real-time reverse transcription–polymerase
chain reaction testing.

CDC has updated interim guidance for the prevention of sexual transmission of Zika virus. The
recommendations apply to all men and women who have traveled to or reside in areas with
active Zika virus transmission and their sex partners. The recommendations in this report replace
those previously issued and are now updated to reduce the risk for sexual transmission of Zika
virus from both men and women to their sex partners. This guidance will be updated as more
information becomes available.
