Columbia County Residents and Visitors Encouraged to Take Precautions to Avoid Mosquito-Borne Illnesses

Full Story
The Florida Department of Health in Columbia County (DOH-Columbia) encourages all residents and visitors to take precautions to protect against mosquito-borne illnesses and prevent mosquito bites, particularly during the warm, moist summer months. In Hamilton County, one horse has recently been diagnosed with Eastern Equine Encephalitis. An additional equine case was reported in northern Columbia County.

The Florida Department of Health (FDOH) celebrates March as National Nutrition Month®, which is sponsored annually by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.  For this year’s theme, FDOH is encouraging Floridians to “Enjoy More Fruits and Vegetables.”  An easy way to build a healthy plate is to make half your plate fruits and vegetables.  It is also a great way to add color, flavor, and texture plus vitamins, minerals and fiber. All these benefits are packed in fruits and vegetables that are also low in calories and fat.
