ZIKA VIRUS:

Travelers to Africa, Asia, Carribean, Mexico, Central, and South America, please be aware of Zika virus.

Our local day-flying, urban mosquito, the Asian Tiget mosquito (Aedes albopictus) can potentially vector Zika, chikungunya, and dengue. Remember to DRAIN & COVER. Use repellents, empty water from outdoor containers, and stay informed.

 

Please visit the DOH website for human specific information and the CDC for travel health notices.
