As individuals are identified as possible Zika patients, Tarrant County Public Health has prepared a Zika Home Care Kit to help educate them regarding the virus. The kits are NOT being provided to the general public.
The kit is a small cardboard box consisting of items and information that can help individuals protect themselves against mosquito bites.
Among the items is a can of mosquito repellent containing DEET. This is for the individual to use on their person and clothing when outside. There is also a package of mosquito dunks. These can be placed in outdoor sources of water, like ponds, that can't be easily drained.
Because Zika can be sexually transmitted, a condom packet is also included, along with educational materials.
Information in the kit includes a Zika Fact Sheet that explains more about the virus, a Backyard Checklist that can help homeowners eliminate potential mosquito breeding areas on their property, and a "Mosquitos Suck!" door hanger that offers further tips on mosquito elimination.
