That distinction is critical because standing water is a vital part of the mosquito's reproductive cycle, said Dr. Karen Chapman, who heads the Okaloosa County Health Department. "For plants that require standing water, it is best to make sure that the water does not remain stagnant for more than a couple of days," she said. "Typically, baby mosquitoes need 10 to 14 days in standing water to complete their development." While the mosquitoes that carry the Zika virus are common in Florida, it's "very unlikely" that Okaloosa County or the United States will have large outbreaks of the virus, primarily because of modern construction and air conditioning, Chapman said.

Red tide affects every person a little differently, said Dr. Karen Chapman, director of the Okaloosa County Health Department. Page 2 of 3 - "If the water is choppy and rough as it has been in the last few days, it can cause an aerosolization," Chapman said. Some people have skin reactions after coming into contact with water affected by red tide. "Generally, the best way to relieve the symptoms is to go inside with the air conditioning," Chapman said. " ... We also encourage children - and adults - not to play with dead fish or the foam that accumulates on the sand during a red tide." Although seafood from restaurants and grocery stores in areas affected by red tide is safe to eat, fish caught by recreational fishermen should be inspected closely, Chapman said. She also recommended not eating any mollusks from the areas where red tide is present. "Just using common sense ... if you're fishing and you catch a fish and it looks sick - don't eat those," Chapman said.
