'Keep Zika Out!'

mosquito and vector

Before summer arrives, community leaders and elected officials will gain an upper hand against the Zika threat and the mosquitoes that can transmit the virus.

Vector control districts and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) will host a Keep Zika Out! workshop for community leaders on April 20, 2017 in the city of South El Monte.

While cities and organizations prepare for a public health emergency, public health officials urge residents to take preventative action now. The following safety precautions are recommended to all residents to reduce disease risk and prevent mosquitoes from ruining outdoor activities.

  • Take 10 minutes, once a week, to Tip and Toss standing water out of all containers around the property.
  • If spending time outdoors, residents should use insect repellent containing the following EPA-registered active ingredients: DEET, oil of lemon eucalyptus (PMD), Picaridin, or IR3535. Always apply according to label instructions.
  • Traveling soon? Avoid mosquito bites and be vigilant about mosquito bites for several weeks after returning home. Travelers should bring home souvenirs and photos, not Zika virus. Travelers can learn more by visiting CDC's website: https://www.cdc.gov/zika/prevention/plan-for-travel.html.
  • Make sure windows, doors and rain barrels have tight-fitting screens to keep mosquitos out. Replace or repair screens that have tears or holes.
  • Contact your local vector control district if there is a signficant mosquito problem or potential mosquito breeding source where you live or work.
