[ARCHIVED] Mosquito Borne Virus Information

Aedes aegypti mosquito

Mosquitoes can carry dangerous diseases including a virus called the Zika virus. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Zika illness is generally mild with a rash, fever and joint pain, but the bigger concern among health officials is the possible link between the virus and harm to unborn babies if the expectant mother contracts the virus during pregnancy.

In an effort to keep residents and visitors safe and aware about the status of the Zika virus, the Florida Department of Health will issue a Zika virus update each week day. For a link to the daily update or steps you can take to help protect yourself please click link below.
