2nd travel-related Zika case in Galveston County

Zika Virus

Zika virus spreads to people primarily from infected mosquitoes, but can also be spread during sex by a person infected with Zika to his or her partners.

To avoid infecting local mosquitoes, people who travel to areas with active Zika transmission should apply insect repellent every time they go outside for at least three weeks after they return and longer if they develop an illness that could be Zika.
