Visit Florida, the state's tourism marketing organization, has launched a Zika virus resource page. The site includes a Q&A section addressing the concerns of Visit Florida's partners, including symptoms of the virus, how it's diagnosed, and where to find the latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention travel notices. The page also includes talking points for various audiences and links to other pertinent resources, including those of the Environmental Protection Agency and Florida Department of Health. 

The measure follows the discovery last week of virus-carrying mosquitoes in the Miami neighborhood of Wynwood and the CDC's subsequent travel notice. At press time, no further areas have been added. The Visit Florida resource site will be updated and new resources will be added when available.
