(News Americas Now) NEW YORK, NY, Fri. April 21, 2017: Reports of Zika cases in the Caribbean may have disappeared from the headlines and even PAHO’s latest epidemiological reports show few to no reported cases, but the US Centers For Disease Control is still warning those thinking of traveling to several Caribbean nations about the virus especially as the weather gets warmer, News Americas Now has found.

Thirty-seven Caribbean countries, including the US territories of Puerto Rico and the USVI, remain on the CDC’s travel advisory list as a “Level 2” alert, which advises travelers to “Practice Enhanced Precautions.” The CDC on March 10, 2017 updated its travel advisory for the islands.

The advisory could put a dent in Caribbean tourism numbers from the US this summer.

The countries still on the CBD travel advisory list are: Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda; Aruba, The Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Bonaire, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Cuba, Curaçao, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Guyana, Guadeloupe, Haiti, French Guiana, Jamaica, Martinique, Montserrat, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, a US territory, Saba, Saint Barthelemy, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Martin, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname, Saba, Saint Bathelemy, Sint Eustatius, Sint Maarten, Trinidad and Tobago, Turks and Caicos Islands and the US Virgin Islands.
