This is an update and replacement of ACOG's Practice Advisory released on January 21, 2016. Zika continues to be an area of evolving care and practice.

Fellows should check periodically for revisions and updates on ACOG's Practice Advisories webpage, CDC's website and SMFM's website. ACOG and SMFM will communicate important changes and updates to this guidance.

On February 5, 2016, CDC issued updated Interim Guidelines for Health Care Providers Caring for Pregnant Women and Women of Reproductive Age with Possible Zika Virus Exposure. This Practice Advisory reiterates the prevention strategies to minimize exposure to Zika and summarizes the current guidance for management of pregnant women who have been exposed.
