Zika Information from Westchester County

Education: Attached is a new flyer “Keep Healthy and Get the Facts” that provides information on Zika and includes a link to a new brochure “Keep Healthy and Bug Off”. These materials offer personal protective measures that can be taken to avoid mosquito bites and to reduce standing water. I encourage you and your constituents to review these materials and to visit the department’s website for up-to-date information. Residents also can call the health department at 813-5000 to report standing water in their area.

Surveillance: The Westchester County Department of Health has doubled the number of mosquito trap sites and has added a new trap designed to attract and capture Aedes mosquitoes – the kind that is capable of transmitting Zika. The health department will monitor the mosquitoes found in Westchester and send mosquitoes for testing for West Nile and Zika viruses.

Mosquito Control: The Westchester County Department of Health will continue its mosquito control efforts, which include larviciding and distributing minnows. Starting May 9th, the health department will evaluate and treat catch basins that can hold standing water throughout the county. To further reduce the mosquito population, the health department will give residents free minnows to add to their backyard ponds and water features and free dunks for their birdbaths, rain barrels and unused pools, as follows:

· Wednesday – Friday, May 4-6, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
· Thursday – Friday, May 19-20, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
· Saturday, May 21, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
