TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn and code enforcement leaders plan to address Zika virus concerns Monday morning.
The mayor will be joined by city officials to discuss ways residents can prevent the virus from spreading.
The area has become a hot spot for the virus, which is spread by mosquitoes.
More than 35 cases have been reported in that part of South Florida.
No non-travel related cases of Zika have been confirmed in the Bay area, officials say, but the state reports at least 466 cases of Zika. Those cases likely involve people who traveled to other countries, then returned to the United States.
The mayor will speak at a home on Elcoe Drive at 10:30 a.m. Monday. 8 On Your Side will be at the event and have the latest throughout the day.
