Prevent Zika

Prevent Zika

     

Recent news of the Zika virus has caused a panic in the community and among the thousands of mothers and children we serve. To date, there are 270 travel-related cases of Zika in Florida (CDC).

Since news of the virus broke in January, the GMC has been promoting protection from mosquito bites and mosquito control. With the help of Channel 5 we checked our neighbors yards (click to see the video) and raised local awareness (click to see the video).

Sign our petition to Governor Rick Scott to fund local outreach to prevent Zika.

0001 (1)Help protect yourself and your community from mosquito-borne diseases like Zika.

  • Drain and cover pools of water in your yard and your neighbors yard.
  • Add a few drops of bleach for pools of water you can’t drain or cover.
  • Wear long sleeves and use insect repellent.
