Add Zika Prevention to Your Back-To-School Checklist

The start of the school year is always a busy time; however, don't forget to be proactive about preventing the spread of the Zika virus. The Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and local health departments ask school districts to increase awareness about Zika prevention to protect students, their families, and the entire community. The DSHS Zika website is a resource hub dedicated to Zika, including a variety of free information and materials in English and Spanish available for download and order. Don't give Zika a biting chance.
