If you're planning a cruise this summer to some Caribbean paradise, Dallas County Health Unit manager, Donna Ferguson says beware of the Zika virus, and bringing it back home with you.

Ferguson said she has more information available at her office about the Zika virus, or you can go online.

You can get rid of mosquitos at your home by dumping water inside and out. use screens on windows and doors and cover trashcans and rain barrels. The biggest danger of the Zika virus is to pregnant women, who if they contract the Zika virus can give birth to children with birth defects.
