Zika Virus Information

With the 2016 Senior PKF Championships in Rio May 23 – 29 we want to make sure our athletes, coaches and referees have the latest information on the Virus and are aware of the risks associated. Most of the information we are receiving is with respect to the Olympic Games timeline which is in August and September we will provide any additional information we get on conditions in May.  The Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organizations websites should provide year round information on the status of the virus.  Please see the links below for additional information on the Zika Virus.

The Center for Disease Control has comprehensive information on the virus http://www.cdc.gov/zika/index.html
