DOVER, Del. (AP) - Delaware state officials will begin distributing Zika prevention kits to pregnant women.

Local news outlets report that public health officials will deliver kits containing condoms, mosquito repellent and thermometers to clinics certified to serve families enrolled in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infant and Children.

Pregnant women seeking services through the program will receive a kit after completing a questionnaire regarding travel history and pregnancy status.

Director of Delaware’s Division of Public Health Dr. Karyl Rattay says that officials are working closely with many partners to inform the public about reducing the potential of local transmission.

The announcement comes after Gov. Jack Markell declared Monday Zika Awareness Day to provide information about Zika prevention.
