Wear long-sleeved shirts, long trousers, and socks when outdoors, especially at dawn and dusk to reduce the amount of exposed skin, as weather permits.

Officials say one of the best ways to avoid mosquito bites is to get rid of standing water and to wear insect repellant. "People over 50 and those with weakened immune systems are especially vulnerable to the disease and are more likely to experience serious consequences".

According to Lowndes County PIO, Paige Dukes, Lowndes County is following local spraying protocols.

In addition to the City's normal spraying program, when an infected mosquito, human or animal is found, the City activates its response plan, calling for immediate, intensive and continued spraying in the areas where the viruses have been positively identified.

The Berkshire Mosquito Control Project will continue its efforts to reduce the mosquito population in the area with the use of larvicide, according to Superintendent Chris Horton.
