Zika Hysteria in Miami “Over the Top”

Has Zika impacted my life in Miami?  Just another conversation piece in a city with plenty of conversation pieces.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock the past few days, you’ve probably heard Zika has made its way to the United States, infecting 14 people so far in the Wynwood area. And just yesterday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued its first ever travel warning for a neighborhood within the United States advising pregnant women and their partners not to visit the area.

On the heels of this announcement outdoor food yard and activity venue The Wynwood Yard, which is located smack dab in the middle of the breakout, has decided to close its doors temporarily. According to a rep for the venue:

Upon weighing the new advisory by the CDC of new Zika cases and due to the 100% outdoor nature of The Wynwood Yard, we decided to take a pause in an abundance of caution in order to better assess preparedness. Until we have more information, in order to make sure we are providing most comfortable and secure environment we possibly can to our team and guests, The Wynwood Yard will be closed.
