With more rain coming our way the Department of Health is encouraging El Paso residents to take proper precautions to avoid contracting the virus by practicing the 4D’s:

  • DEET – When going outdoors remember to use insect repellents
  • DRESS – When possible wear long sleeves, long pants, and socks
  • DUSK and DAWN – Avoid outdoor activities during peak mosquito times which are dusk and dawn.
  • DRAIN – Reduce mosquitoes by draining standing water on a regular basis.

To report standing water or mosquito breeding, call 3-1-1.
