Wynwood seized national attention in August when the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a travel advisory warning expectant mothers against visiting a one-square mile area north of downtown Miami where locally transmitted Zika virus was found.
It was the first time in the CDC’s 70-year-history that the agency has warned Americans from traveling somewhere in the continental United States.
While the Zika virus continues to course across Florida — with more than 800 cases reported, including 77 transmitted locally — cases from Wynwood have dried up.
Scott plans to stop at a gallery in the trendy neighborhood this morning — just days after he steered another $10 million toward fighting the virus, bringing the state’s total spending to $36.2 million so far.
Meanwhile, the state has expanded an area it is investigating for Zika transmission in nearby Miami Beach.
