Arbovirus surveillance in Florida includes local mosquito-borne viruses such as West Nile virus (WNV), Eastern equine encephalitis virus (EEEV), St. Louis encephalitis virus (SLEV), and Highlands J virus (HJV) and exotic (imported) viruses such as dengue virus (DENV), chikungunya virus (CHIKV) and California encephalitis group viruses (CEV).

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.
