AUSTIN, Texas — According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, two cases of Zika have been reported in Williamson County.
Not many details have been provided about the two cases, however DSHS did confirm that both cases are travel-related.
The Zika virus is spread through mosquitos, but can also be spread from mother to child, through blood transfusion, and sexual contact. The most common symptoms include fever, rash, joint pain and conjunctivitis.
People can prevent mosquitos from breeding in their yard by making sure to remove any standing water.
It is also important to use insect repellents when going outside and avoid being outdoor during peak mosquito hours.
