Zika Virus Information and Resources
The Tennessee Department of Health and the Tennessee Department of Education are committed to preventing the spread of the Zika virus in our state, particularly given the threat this disease presents to pregnant women and their babies. To that end, they have provided several resources to share with you and your local communities.

Guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for school districts in the U.S. regarding the Zika virus has recently been released and endorsed by the Tennessee Department of Health. This guidance can be found at https://www.cdc.gov/zika/schools.html. Extensive additional information is also available on the Tennessee Department of Health website: http://tn.gov/health/topic/zika-virus. You may also call the Shelby County Health Department at (901)222-9000 or visit their website at http://www.shelbytnhealth.com/.
