CDC Recommendations for Infants Exposed to Zika Virus • Zika virus testing • Standard evaluation at birth • Head ultrasound within 1 month of birth • Comprehensive eye exam by an ophthalmologist within 1 month of birth • Automated auditory brain stem response (ABR) by 1 month of birth if infant passed the newborn hearing screen using only the otoacoustic emissions (OAE) method • Referral to a developmental specialist and early intervention services • Confirmation that family support is available
