There is no commercially available test for Zika virus. For those patients meeting travel and symptom criteria, laboratory testing for Zika virus disease is currently performed by the Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene (WSLH) with confirmatory testing performed by CDC. All requests for Zika virus testing must be approved by a Wisconsin DPH communicable diseases epidemiologist. Health care providers can call 608-267-9003 (fax 608-261-4976) to discuss testing needs. Information needed for testing approval include onset date, clinical signs and symptoms, and area and dates of travel.
