Texas Adds Three Counties to Enhanced Zika Testing Recommendations
The Texas Department of State Health Services has issued a health alert recommending routine Zika virus testing for pregnant women who live in Kinney, Maverick and Val Verde counties. DSHS also advises testing anyone in those counties with an itchy rash plus one other common Zika symptom: fever, joint pain or eye redness. The new counties join Cameron, Hidalgo, Starr, Webb, Willacy, and Zapata counties, where enhanced Zika surveillance is already occurring.
