MIAMI, Aug. 8, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Association Services of Florida, an Associa company, is not taking the threat of Zika lightly. They are making sure residents in its managed condos are fully informed about the CDC's (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) recommendation for those living within Miami's Wynwood neighborhood.
On Friday, May 5, the management firm distributed informational flyers to more than 1,200 condo unit owners, within a 20 block area between NW 20th St. and NW 39th St., who are considered to be at the greatest risk of contracting the mosquito-transmitted virus which has been linked to at least 14 cases in that area, according to the CDC.
"We are taking every precaution necessary and making sure the residents living within our managed communities are informed about the precautions they should be taking as well," says Association Services of Florida President Marc Rodriguez. "Unsurpassed customer service and compassion for our clients is an important part of the Associa culture and this effort is one of the ways we're able to directly impact the health and well-being of the families who have put their trust in us."
The Zika virus alert flyer that was distributed includes information about how to control mosquito breeding, such as removing standing water. It also covers protective measures that can be taken to avoid exposure to mosquitos and lists common Zika virus symptoms along with important CDC contact information.
