During January 3–March 5, 2016, Zika virus testing was performed in the United States for 4,534 people who traveled to or moved from areas with active Zika virus transmission; 3,335 (73.6%) were pregnant women. Among 1,541 people who received testing and reported symptoms, 182 (11.8%) had confirmed Zika virus infection. Only seven asymptomatic pregnant women (0.3%) had confirmed Zika virus infection. These data suggest that in the current U.S. setting, the likelihood of Zika virus infection among asymptomatic people is low.
