Health and Agriculture Officials Urge Mosquito-Borne Illness Awareness

Full Story
Tallahassee, Fla.— The Florida Department of Health is advising residents there has been an increase in mosquito-borne disease activity in several counties across the state. Although no human cases have been reported, several horses and emus have tested positive for Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) virus. West Nile virus (WNV) and St. Louis encephalitis (SLE) virus are also present in mosquitoes in Florida. The risk of disease transmission through bites of infected mosquitoes to humans has increased.

The Partnership for Healthier Nassau wants to know “what matters to you” when you think of health. Your ideas will shape our local Health Improvement Plan for 2019-2021.

The survey takes 8 minutes to complete and the findings will be shared with the community in September at a strategic planning meeting. By completing the survey you will help us create a new plan to support your personal health. Thank you!
