In the news

Zika virus

Brianne Probasco

Currently, there are locally transmitted Zika cases reported in Miami, Florida and Brownsville, Texas.  No other locally transmitted cases have been reported in the continental United States.

We will continue to monitor the Zika virus outbreak and will update this page.

Zika virus is primarily spread to people through mosquito bites.

There are two different types of mosquitoes that transmit Zika virus - most commonly Aedes aegypti and possibly Aedes albopictus.  Neither type typically lives in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States.

There have also been reports of the Zika virus being spread by sexual contact.

The most common symptoms of Zika virus disease are:

  • fever
  • rash
  • joint pain
  • red eyes (conjunctivitis)

The illness is usually mild with symptoms lasting from several days to a week.

Severe disease requiring hospitalization is uncommon, but Zika virus disease among pregnant women has been associated with birth defects.

Lead

Brianne Probasco

News reports about high levels of lead in drinking water across the nation are raising questions about the safety of drinking water.

  • Community water systems are required to regularly test to ensure the water provided is safe to drink.
  • If you have concerns about the safety of your drinking water, you should contact your public utility company.

It is important to understand that water is not a major source of lead exposure.  Lead paint, dust, and contaminated soil are usually the most significant sources of lead exposure.

If you're concerned that your child may have been exposed to lead, call:

  • your medical provider
