Bermuda, a 21-square-mile island located in the North Atlantic Ocean, is located just two hours from most east coast gateways.

 Zika Not Transmitted in Bermuda  

The Zika virus continues to receive a tremendous amount of attention and, understandably, there may be concerns about traveling to areas where the virus has been transmitted. It has not been transmitted in Bermuda because the most common mosquito species to transmit the virus, the Aedes aegypti, is not found on the Island. Bermuda has one of the most comprehensive mosquito control programmes in the world. The BTA continues to monitor the situation with appropriate local and international health authorities. At this time, travel to Bermuda is as safe and as easy as it’s always been.
