Travel-Associated Illnesses Spread by Mosquitoes

Travel-associated illnesses spread by mosquitoes are illnesses that people can get while traveling outside of Wisconsin and often outside of the U.S. Some travel-associated illnesses spread by mosquitoes include chikungunya virus, dengue virus, Zika virus, malaria, yellow fever, and Japanese encephalitis virus.

Not all mosquito bites will make you sick, but it is still important to take steps to protect yourself and your family while traveling to regions where these and other illnesses exist. Travel-associated illnesses spread by mosquitoes are preventable. Please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Travelers' Health page for more information on how to protect yourself from mosquito bites while traveling.
