Zika Education Before Commissioners

Bexar County Commissioners will talk about a public education effort regarding the Zika Virus Tuesday.

“Getting as much information as we possibly can directly out to the citizens of Bexar County,” Judge Nelson Wolff said.

The outreach proposal would cost about $85,000.

“Try to get as much information to them as we can, in particular, the things individuals can do to make sure they’re not harvesting mosquitos with stagnant water or things around their home that would lead to the breeding of more mosquitos,” he said.

The county has already started abatement and spraying preparation, but Wolff said “a lot of the problems can be on private property, which we don’t have access to, and that’s where citizens have to step up and be very helpful in this case.”
