Health officials for both agencies urge residents to take precautions to prevent transmission, including removing pools of standing water from residential areas; wearing light-colored long-sleeved shirts and trousers; and applying EPA-approved mosquito repellant.

"The rain Denton County has received [last] week cannot be attributed to these recent cases, but standing water left from rain last month could have left breeding grounds for these mosquitoes", Rainey said. "Mosquito Repellent with DEET or Picaridin is also a great way to avoid mosquito bites". It is transmitted to humans and animals by the bite of an infected mosquito.

Wearing light-colored clothing to cover the skin reduces the risk of bites.
