Zika Virus Information

Because of uncertainty about the effects of the virus on the fetus during pregnancy, the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) has issued a travel advisory to Zika affected countries. PHAC recommends: pregnant women and those considering becoming pregnant discuss their travel plans with their health care provider to assess their risk and consider postponing travel to areas where the Zika virus is circulating. If travel cannot be postponed, strict mosquito bite prevention measures should be followed.

If you have travelled to a Zika-affected country, PHAC recommends the following:

  • Women who are planning a pregnancy should wait at least two months before trying to conceive

For male travellers:

  • Those with pregnant partners should wear condoms for the duration of the pregnancy
  • Wear condoms for 6 months before trying to conceive with your partner
  • Wear condoms for 6 months with any partner

For additional information on preventing Zika virus, see the Government of Canada website.

A list of the countries where Zika virus transmission has been documented is available from the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO).

Public Health Ontario has a general ‘Question and Answer’ section that includes information on travel, testing information and information for pregnant travellers or women considering pregnancy after travel. If you have questions about the risk of Zika virus infection or whether you should get tested after travelling, please speak to your Health Care Provider.

For Health Care Professionals, additional information on Zika Virus is available on our Health Care Professionals page.
