Any Reports of Chikungunya Fever- Planned trip in April

I just was reading the NY Times article today regarding the Chikungunya Fever that first hit St. Maarten, and has spread to Domenica, BVI, St. Barts, Guadelope. I am traveling with wife and two boys ages 7 and 13 this April and am a little concerned. We were planning to do island/rain forrest tours. Also plan to bring plenty of DEET spray, but if it continues to spread throughout the Caribbean, may alter travel plans.

On the CDC website (last updated 2/27/14) it lists St. Kitts but right now it's a "Watch - Level 1, Practice Usual Precaution". This is the link for the CDC website where i found this information: …cdc.gov/travel/…chikungunya-saint-martin

We are also planning a cruise leaving out of Puerto Rico on March 16 - 23, sailing to St Thomas; St Kitts; Aruba; and Curacao. Would you please provide any update that you might obtain regarding Chikungunya Fever.

Thank You!
