4:05 pm
but if you're young and you don't need to get pregnant right now, talk to your doctor. every case is individual. >> and seems to me there's two the kinds of prevention, mosquito spray and birth control. >> absolutely. so for one, what can you do today? protect yourself from the mosquitoes. make sure you're wearing repellent, wearing long sleeved clothing. i know that sounds crazy in florida but keeping the sun off your skin might keep you cooler. and the governor is being aggressive about spraying for mosquitoes. that's important. and your partner has to be careful about not spreading zika virus to you because it's sexually transmitted. if you are of child bearing age and you live in an area where there's zika virus or a concern that the area is going to and have zika virus, get on birth control. you don't want an unintended pregnancy right now. >> that's all good advice.
