What is chikungunya?

Chikungunya is a viral disease transmitted by mosquitoes. It occurs most often in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Pacific Islands, but travel-related cases have been reported in US territories. Symptoms include fever and joint pain, as well as headache, muscle pain, and rash.

Providers must report suspected or confirmed chikungunya cases.

To report a case, visit our Report Notifiable Conditions page, or call (253) 798-6534.
