Zika Brief for Caribbean Travel Partners

The spread of Zika virus in the Americas, other tropical regions and most recently in Florida has understandably caused concern to both residents of and travelers to those areas. While ZIKA virus itself is described as a mild virus with only one in 5 persons showing any symptoms, a link of the virus to microcephaly in babies has been confirmed even though the precise nature of this link is yet to be determined.

The Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association (CHTA) and the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) are aware that our travel partners and consumers may have questions about travel to the region. We have compiled the brief that you can download below and links to related resources you can find in our Zika Resource Center to provide pertinent information about Zika and travel to the Caribbean.
