This bill requires the Department of Health (DOH) to develop a Zika Virus State Action Plan to reduce the impact of infection from the virus on residents of New Jersey. The plan, at a minimum, would: identify protocols for limiting the spread of the Zika virus which would include, but not be limited to, emptying standing water in target areas where mosquitoes breed; provide for the trapping and testing of mosquitoes in an area where the virus is suspected to have been transmitted; include an eradication plan to target an area that has been affected by the transmission of the virus; and provide for upgrading or increasing the Public Health Laboratory Services in DOH, as necessary, to be able to obtain prompt results following testing for the virus. DOH would coordinate implementation of the plan with other State and local entities, and take such other action as the Commissioner of Health deems necessary to reduce the impact of Zika virus in New Jersey.
