As of January 1, 2018, all but one case of Zika virus
disease identified among LA County residents were infected while traveling outside of California, mostly in Mexico and Central America (e.g., Guatemala, Nicaragua, and El Salvador).
Special Report: Zika Virus Surveillance in Los Angeles
County, 2016 for more information. The remaining case was infected by sexual transmission.
Below is the CDC feed noting the locations where Zika is actively spreading.
LA County has been identified by the CDC as one of the
highest risk jurisdictions in the country for a local
Zika outbreak due to the amount of travel from Zika-affected
areas. Please see
Special Report: Rapid Community Investigation of Zika
for more information. Because the locations and corresponding recommendations for Zika and other diseases are constantly changing, view the CDC travel site for additional information:
