Preventing dengue is as simple as preventing bites from the Aedes aegypti mosquito.

The Public Health Department of the Cayman Islands and the Mosquito Research & Control Unit () suggests the public continue to follow these tips to protect themselves from dengue:

  • Get rid of standing water in containers around your residence
  • Try to avoid going outside at times of Aedes aegypti activity
  • Wear long-sleeve shirts and long pants when possible
  • Wear EPA-registered mosquito repellent
  • Make sure to keep doors/windows closed or screened when possible
  • Avoid areas with standing water. Especially at times of high mosquito activity like dawn and dusk
