The Ministry of Health issued a release on Friday, following consultation with the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA).
It said while it continues its efforts to monitor Zika and other mosquito borne diseases, citizens are encouraged to follow guidelines to prevent infection of themselves and their loved ones.
- Dispose of all unwanted containers/items in the yard or environs which can collect water and become mosquito breeding grounds.
- Cover water containers such as barrels, drums or buckets with a mosquito proof covering.
- Cover extremities when out in the evenings and among other things.
- Use insect repellent that contains Deet as an active ingredient.
