Answer

Zika virus infection is among the nationally notifiable diseases in the United States. State and local health departments should be informed by healthcare professionals of suspected cases of Zika virus infection to facilitate diagnosis and to reduce the risk of local transmission.

The CDC has released a map of potential Zika virus spread in the United States based on the estimated range of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes. The maps can be found at http://www.cdc.gov/zika/pdfs/zika-mosquito-maps.pdf.
