hile heath experts are saying this is something to take seriously, they don't want people to fear going outside.
"They should be concerned. Don't get me wrong.
they should also be making sure they know what they can do to protect themselves so they can go out and enjoy the nice weather that we have," says Kevin Zimmerman, Director of Environmental Health.
Covering up with long pants and long sleeves along with bug spray is highly suggested. But, even with those layers of protection, there will be more spraying. But, this time with trucks.
While there's been a lot of mixed feelings when it comes to aerial spraying for mosquitoes and now ground spraying, some others are saying, spray. They want to be protected.
"Everybody doesn't like it, but for us that are even more bombarded because of the swamp. I would say go ahead," says Woznica.
Whether its spraying in the air or on the ground, they plan on taking every precaution to make sure that no one else gets infected with the potentially deadly disease.
