Emerging or reemerging infectious diseases (EIDs) are rapidly increasing. EIDs will remain a major cause of disease and death worldwide. One such EID is the Zika virus (ZIKV). ZIKV proves to be a global public health crisis. In January 2016, it became a notifiable condition in the United States. Providers must be knowledgeable regarding preventive measures as well as the proper diagnosis and treatment for it. The most current, evidence-based guidelines for managing ZIKV in the general population as well as specific recommendations for pregnant women are presented.
