Recent events in Flint, Michigan have resulted in increased public attention to the issue of lead in drinking water. In Wisconsin, there are no lead-related drinking water emergencies like in Flint.
There are a number of resources for more information on lead:
ZIKA VIRUS TRAVEL HEALTH ALERT: CDC has issued travel alerts for pregnant women traveling to high-risk areas where Zika virus transmission is ongoing such as Central and South America and the Caribbean. Zika virus is transmitted to humans by the bite of infected mosquitoes and can be transmitted from mother to baby during pregnancy resulting in birth defects and poor birth outcomes. No vaccine or treatment is currently available. Locally mosquito-transmitted Zika virus has not been reported in the continental United States at this time, but has been associated with travel to high risk areas. For information on Zika virus and travel alerts go to https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/arboviral/zika.htm
