**Travel advisory | Zika Virus reports**

last updated: July 30, 2016

Please be advised of reports of an outbreak of mosquito-borne Zika virus affecting parts of Latin America, the United States and the Caribbean, including Aruba, Bahamas, Barbados, Cayman Islands, Costa Rica, Colombia, Cuba, Curaçao, Dominican Republic,  Ecuador, Florida, Haiti, Grenada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, St. Maarten, St. Thomas, St. Croix, St. Lucia, Texas and Turks and Caicos.

The risk of mosquito-borne transmission on aircraft is extremely low and customers traveling to affected areas should follow the recommendations provided by the CDC at

What is Zika?
Zika is a mosquito-borne virus that is spread to people through mosquito bites.

What are the symptoms?
The most common symptoms of Zika are fever, rash, joint pain, and conjunctivitis.  The symptoms are usually mild and can last several days to a week. Many people infected with Zika will not develop symptoms or even realize they have been infected.

What is the treatment?
There is no vaccine to prevent or medicine to treat Zika. Travelers can protect themselves from contracting Zika by taking steps to prevent mosquito bites, such as using insect repellent, wearing long sleeves and pants, and staying in places with air conditioning or window and door screens.

Zika and Pregnancy
Zika virus can be spread from a pregnant woman to her unborn baby and can cause serious birth defects and other poor pregnancy outcomes. The CDC recommends special precautions for pregnant women and women trying to become pregnant:

  • Pregnant women should not travel to any area with Zika, and women trying to get pregnant should talk to their doctors before traveling or before their male partners travel.
  • It is especially important that women who wish to delay or avoid pregnancy consistently use the most effective method of birth control that they are able to use. Those traveling to areas with Zika should take steps during and after they travel to prevent mosquito bites and sexual transmission of Zika.
  • Pregnant women and women who are trying to become pregnant should consult their doctor before using insect repellants.

Does Zika virus infection cause GBS?
We do not yet know if there is a connection between GBS and Zika virus infection. It is difficult to determine if any particular pathogen or germ “causes” Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS). The Brazil Ministry of Health has reported an increased number of people who have been infected with Zika virus who also have GBS. CDC is working with Brazil to study the possibility of a link between Zika and GBS.

Because the spread of Zika is ongoing, travelers should check the CDC travel website for the most up-to-date locations and recommendations:

In the case of organized group travel, a letter is not necessary; it is assumed that the chaperone has obtained prior permission.

Photo identification is required for both parties who drop off and pick up an unaccompanied minor. Unaccompanied minors will not be accepted without the guardian's photo ID.

When a gate pass is issued, it's the TSA's decision as to whether a young child, in addition to the unaccompanied minor, may pass through security with the adult.

When dropping off the unaccompanied minor, the parent/guardian may NOT leave the airport until the following criteria are met:

  • The parent/guardian has a signed copy of the UMNR form

In the event of a gate return, a JetBlue crewmember will contact the parent/guardian so that he/she can immediately return to the airport to meet their minor.

Pick-up information

When picking up an unaccompanied minor, please proceed into the arrivals area directly located outside of Customs to meet the minor. Please arrive at the airport no later than 30 minutes before the scheduled arrival.
