Keeping Zika Out of Huntsville! 

During the first week of May, Governor Greg Abbott and Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) Commissioner Dr. John Hellerstedt sent a letter to County Judges and Mayors across the state asking for their continued assistance in combatting locally-transmitted Zika viruses in Texas.

“With the ongoing risk posed by Zika, we are requesting your continued assistance in delaying locally transmitted Zika virus in Texas this year by promoting precautions to prevent mosquito bites and taking action to reduce mosquito breeding grounds in your communities,” read the letter. “We expect local mosquito transmission to resume and persist as the weather warms and mosquito activity increases. The Texas Department of State Health Services stands ready to provide technical expertise as you prepare your locality’s Zika response plans or prepare to conduct community engagement efforts,” the letter continued.

The City’s website also has a page of links and precautions on infectious diseases, including Zika, at http://www.huntsvilletx.gov/InfectiousDisease or http://www.huntsvilletx.gov/Zika. Below is a list of measures communities and individuals can take to protect themselves against mosquito bites and Zika virus.

All City facilities will be closed on Memorial Day, Monday, May 29.  The Solid Waste and Recycling facility will also be closed, and there will be no garbage services that day.
