    Health Observances

    August Sunshine

    September has lots of health observances, among them being National Preparedness Month, Fruits & Veggies -- More Matters Month, HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day and Falls Prevention Awareness Day.

    Though the weather has started cooling off, occasional rains still provide the water needed to help mosquitoes breed. That means West Nile Virus and Zika Virus remain active health concerns.

    Tarrant County Public Health continues to urge residents to keep areas around their homes free of standing water. Along with the Eliminate Mosquito Breeding Sites video, TCPH has provided an additional video on the Be Mosquito Free webpage that shows how barrier treatments can help keep mosquitoes at bay.
