Is Zika Virus a concern in Clark County?
Mosquitoes that spread Zika virus do not live in the Northwest, and there is currently no local risk of Zika transmission through mosquitoes. However, travelers to areas where Zika is found are at risk for infection. Currently, these areas include much of Latin America and the Caribbean. Pregnant women should try to avoid travel to Zika affected areas because of the risks to their unborn children. Only 1 in 5 people infected with Zika will have any symptoms. Common symptoms are fever, rash, joint pain, and red eyes. The illness is usually mild and lasts a few days to a week. For more information, visit the CDC’s Zika website.
