The effected counties include Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, Santa Clara, San Diego, Sonoma and Stanislaus.

Those who experience more serious symptoms such as severe headaches, neck stiffness, confusion, muscle weakness or paralysis should seek medical care immediately. Repellents containing DEET, picaridin, IR3535, and some oil of lemon eucalyptus and para-menthane-diol products provide longer-lasting protection. "Simple steps, like applying repellent, wearing long-sleeved shirts and trousers in the early morning and evening, and draining standing water near your home can help to prevent bites from infected mosquitoes". Standing water can be treated with EPA-approved larvicides to kill mosquitoes before they become adults. Make sure screens on windows and doors are in good condition and secured to keep insects out.
