Measles Update – Travelers urged to protect themselves

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is reporting 465 cases of measles in 19 states so far this year. This is the second-greatest number of cases reported in the United States since measles was eliminated in 2000. The Southern Nevada Health District reported two confirmed cases of measles in Clark County the last six months. The CDC is urging people to protect themselves before traveling, especially to international destinations.

‘Tis the Season – Mosquito Season, that is!

LAS VEGAS – As temperatures increase in Southern Nevada, so does mosquito activity, and so do the activities of the Southern Nevada Health District’s Mosquito Surveillance Program staff. The Health District is reminding residents to “Fight the Bite” this season by eliminating standing water around their home, preventing mosquito bites by wearing an EPA-registered repellent, and reporting mosquito activity to the Health District by calling (702) 759-1633.
