What is being done to stop imported Zika from spreading?

DOH actively investigates reported cases of Zika and other mosquito-borne illnesses such as dengue and chikungunya, as well as works to identify any other cases and evaluate for on-going spread of disease. Department staff are also assessing areas of concern for mosquito activity and may, as a safeguard, spray areas specifically related to our ongoing investigation.

DOH and many other partners are reaching out to residents and visitors to Fight the Bite! by helping to get rid of mosquitoes and keep from getting bitten (see “How can you keep from getting it?”, and “What steps should be taken to reduce mosquito nuisance at home?”).
