Golf courses across the country are closing in the wake of a new outbreak of the Zika virus that is sweeping the country.
The closures come as the government has been working to curb travel from the affected regions and has ordered public health officials to step up inspections.
The closures come amid heightened travel restrictions in areas affected by the outbreak, as well as a state of emergency declared by Gov.
Deval Patrick in January.
In Ohio, the state’s golf courses have closed since January, but the closures are expected to continue until the end of the week.
Officials in other states are also closing courses as they try to quell concerns about the virus, which has spread across the nation.
In Indiana, for instance, the Governor said that the state would end the season beginning Sunday.
