Zika Virus information

While no incidents of the Zika Virus have been reported in New Jersey, health officials want people to be educated about how the mosquito-borne illness can spread, what you can do to protect yourself, how you can control the risks involved and what to do if you suspect you may have been exposed.

Click here to visit a website created by the state Board of Health that has all kinds of information on the illness. The federal Centers for Disease Control have a site, too.
