Miami Shores Village Zika Virus Update

 

With recent developments in the Zika related cases in the Miami area of Wynwood, Miami Shores Village has received many requests and concerns regarding the Zika virus. Miami Shores Village administration is closely monitoring the situation by following the Florida Department of Health and the Miami-Dade County Emergency Operations Center advisories.

The Village is actively conducting visual sweeps of your neighborhood to identify the primary breeding places for the Aedes Aegypti mosquitoes that carry the Zika virus. These types of breeding grounds include standing water in items such as birdbaths and bromeliad plants or flower pots. More information on bromeliads and mosquitoes at http://www.miamidade.gov/solidwaste/bromeliads-and-mosquitoes.asp.

These mosquitoes do NOT typically breed in puddles as this water tends to dissipate quickly. If the Village identifies any items that may collect water anywhere on your property, you may receive a notice to drain the items. We encourage you to following the County’s Drain and Cover guidelines. Links are available below.

The Village is also currently placing mosquito dunks in the storm drains to eliminate the breeding of the mosquito. You are encouraged to take the necessary precautions when outdoors such as wearing long sleeve shirts, long pants, shoes and DEET mosquito repellent particularly at dusk and dawn when the mosquitoes are most active.

Miami-Dade County Mosquito Control will be conducting aerial spraying of the one-mile area surrounding the Wynwood area at dusk and dawn beginning tonight (weather permitting.) The Department has implemented a Zika Virus action plan. To view the latest bulletin from the County and the FL Department of Health, click here.

Please help Spill the Water! And Drain and Cover! Miami Shores Village is committed to supporting the efforts of Miami-Dade County and the Florida Department of Health to control and abate the mosquito population.
