The Florida Department of Health announces three new travel-associated cases today with one in Miami-Dade, one in Hillsborough and one in Martin counties. That brings Martin’s total to four.
The department urges Floridians to drain standing water weekly, no matter how seemingly small. A couple drops of water in a bottle cap can be a breeding location for mosquitoes. Residents and visitors also need to use repellents when enjoying the Florida outdoors.
The number for the Zika Virus Information Hotline is 1-855-622-6735.
