*Sexually transmitted cases are not reported for areas with local mosquito-borne transmission of Zika virus because it is not possible to determine whether infection occurred due to mosquito-borne or sexual transmission.
***The CDC recommends that all pregnant women be tested for infection at each prenatal care visit if they live in an active transmission area or if their sexual partner has traveled to one. Here is guidance for collecting and submitting the samples.
