Prevent the Spread of Zika Virus this Summer

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has confirmed that Zika virus infections in infants can lead to microcephaly (abnormal smallness of the head, associated with incomplete brain development) and in fetal losses in women infected during pregnancy. To learn more about this virus, visit our Epidemiology section. Zika virus is spread through the bite of a mosquito. As the spring and summer months roll in, mosquito activity increases. Reduce your risk of mosquito-borne infections like Zika virus by eliminating mosquito breeding grounds. Check your home/yard for these potential breeding sites weekly.
