Long-sleeve shirts and trousers can prevent infection, as can the use of insect repellent.
To reduce the likelihood of infection, residents are advised to avoid mosquitoes, particularly between dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active, and to use insect repellent. Make sure that your doors and windows have tight-fitting screens to keep out mosquitoes.
