Can I get tested for Zika?

If you are at all concerned you might have Zika, you should contact your healthcare provider and avoid exposure to mosquitoes. If you have symptoms of Zika or other mosquito-borne illness and have history of travel to an area with active spread of Zika disease, your healthcare provider will contact DOH to order blood tests to confirm the diagnosis. Some Zika testing can be done at the DOH State Laboratories on Oahu, while more complex testing would be done at the CDC.

If you have limited financial means and do not have a primary care provider, you may seek medical help at a neighborhood health center if you are not in need of immediate urgent care. Individuals needing immediate urgent care should call 911 or go to the emergency room.
