Dear Region 9 Partners:

We will be sharing Zika specific content in the coming weeks in hopes some of you can use your own networks to help spread the latest information and resources. Please consider sharing some of the information below:

Mosquito Control: You Have Options
Preventing Zika takes a plan. Learn what steps http://www.cdc.gov/zika/prevention/prev ... bites.html your family needs to take to prevent Zika at home.

Download the CDC Zika Widget for your website:
· English: http://www.cdc.gov/widgets/zika/index.html
· Spanish: http://www.cdc.gov/widgets/zikaspanish/index.html

Here is some sample social media to help spread the word:
Facebook
· Wearing insect repellent is a great way to prevent mosquito bites! Use EPA-registered insect repellents that contain DEET, picaridin, IR3535, or oil of lemon eucalyptus or para-menthane-diol. They’re safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women too. http://www.cdc.gov/zika/prevention/prev ... bites.html
· Fewer mosquitoes = fewer mosquito bites. Everyone can do their part to help control mosquitoes. Tell us what you and your family do in and around your home or community! http://www.cdc.gov/zika/prevention/cont ... -home.html
· How can you keep your windows open this summer, but keep mosquitoes out? Install or repair screens on windows and doors. Enjoy the breeze without the bugs! http://www.cdc.gov/zika/prevention/cont ... -home.html
