Avoiding the Zika Virus

Hello everyone! Just a quick reminder this time—-since Summer is in full swing, and mosquito-borne illnesses like the Zika virus are in the news more than Brad and Angelina, we would like to give you the AAP recommendations for preventing mosquito bites.

  1. Use an effective repellant, such as one containing up to 30% DEET, and spray on exposed skin and clothing (for other acceptable repellants, visit EPA.gov…)
  2. Drain standing water in the yard
  3. Avoid being outdoors at dusk

Have fun everybody!!
