There are now two confirmed cases of Zika virus in our province.
Manitoba Health says both people recently travelled to places experiencing outbreaks.
The risk to people here is very low as the species of mosquitoes that carry the virus can’t survive our cool weather.
It’s recommended that pregnant women avoid travel to areas where Zika is prevalent.
Men who have symptoms or are diagnosed with Zika are urged to use condoms for sex at least six months.
Those who have have just travelled there, but aren’t sick, are still told to consider doing the same, or refrain, for eight weeks.
