Get ZIKA Updates Before You Travel


If you haven’t taken your spring break trip yet, and are heading out of the country, you may want to consider getting a Zika virus update before you go. Zika has been found in several popular vacation spots, and 17 Delawareans have already picked up the virus from mosquito bites when they traveled.
