    Travelers to Cuba should bring lots of mosquito repellant — not just
    for themselves.

    The Zika virus is being spread by mosquitos in Cuba, so travelers are
    being told to bring bug spray to protect themselves.
    Suzanne Carlson, owner of Carlson Maritime Travel in Tarpon Springs,
    says visitors should also bring extra to share with locals with no
    access to bug repellant.

    “The last time I was down there I asked some of my associates and
    friends ‘What can I bring you?’” Carlson said. “In the past mosquito
    repellant wasn’t on that list and it is now. ‘Bring me repellant for my
    children.’”

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a travel alert for
    visitors to Cuba. It says people returning from the island should be on
    alert for three weeks after their visit, trying to prevent new mosquito
    bites and using protection during sex.
