So, the Florida Department of Health announced Friday that the Zika virus is no longer only being contracted by travelers overseas — now it’s being spread by mosquitoes in Miami. Kind of amazingly, they’ve narrowed it down to one square mile in the city, between NW 5th Avenue and US1 and NW/NE 38th Street and NW/NE 20th Street, the Miami Herald reports.
Yep, Wynwood is smack in the center of that.
Back in May, we tried to answer your most pressing Zika questions. You can find that here (and we’ll be updating it soon, now that it’s local). And while usually people like to talk about the best places to hang out outside, in light of the Zika virus, we’re going to remind you of some great spots in Wynwood to hang out inside. Where the mosquitoes are much less likely to get you.
But seriously folks, especially if you’re pregnant — put on some bug spray. Don’t leave standing water out. Stay indoors when the mosquitoes are at their worst. The Center for Disease Control’s got the rundown, and you should probably read it.
