News & Important Information
West Nile & Zika Virus Information

Defend yourself and the City of Lake Worth against the West Nile Virus by taking just a few simple steps.

Just remember the Four D's

  • DUSK / DAWN  are the times of day that you should try to stay indoors.  This is when infected mosquitoes are most active.


  • DRESS in long sleeves and pants when you're outside.  For extra protection, you may want to spray thin clothing with repellant.


  • DEET (N,N-diethyl-m-tolamide) is an ingredient to look for in your insect repellent.  Follow the instructions on the label and always wear repellent when outdoors.


  • DRAIN standing water in your backyard and neighborhood - old tires, flowerpots, and clogged rain gutters.  These are mosquito breeding sites.

Fewer than 1% of those bitten by infected mosquitoes become severely ill.

If you have symptoms that include stiff neck, high fever, or severe headache,

contact your health-care provider immediately.
