Management of Pregnant Women Exposed to Zika Virus: Resources for Providers

See ACOG’s Practice Advisory for official guidance on testing, screening, and managing pregnant women exposed to Zika virus.

Some jurisdictions (e.g. those at increased risk for local transmission) will continue to recommend Zika testing for asymptomatic pregnant women due to increased risks of transmission. Therefore, obstetric providers should check regularly with their state and local health departments for information on testing asymptomatic pregnant women without ongoing possible exposure. ACOG members should check their District and Section webpages for location-specific information.
