Don't go outside when mosquitoes are active (between dusk and dawn). Try to avoid outdoor activities during these times.

Turn over objects that may trap water when not in use, such as wading pools and wheelbarrows.
It's also recommending that residents reduce their time spent outside during dusk and dawn, wear long sleeves and long trousers.
