Have questions on the Zika virus?

Miami Beach and Florida officials will be on hand Monday night to help answer them.

A town hall meeting on Zika is planned from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Waverly condominium, 1330 West Ave. in Miami Beach.

Miami Beach’s Zika zone stretches from 8th to 28th Street. The other area where local Zika cases have been identified is across the bay in Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood.

Speakers at the Miami Beach town hall include Florida Surgeon General Celeste Phillip, City Manager Jimmy Morales and state Rep. David Richardson, who is hosting the vent.

The meeting’s goal is “to inform residents and visitors about the recent designation of our local community as a Zika zone.”
