I'm 22 weeks pregnant and a close friend of mine is travelling to Jamaica for a month in early June.
Jamaica is high risk for zika Virus so should I limit contact when she returns as I'm pregnant or can it not be passed on?

How close are you? Sleeping together would of you at risk, but if you're not having sex and you're not living somewhere with the aedes mosquito vector to transmit it to you then you'll be fine - relax.

Yeah, Zika is only transmitted sexually and through mosquito bites, so you've nothing to worry about smile
