Reports of travel-associated Zika virus disease cases continue to increase across mainland US. As of March 8, 2016, there have been 157 cases reported in Puerto Rico, with 9 hospitalizations.

Most days, you can’t turn on the news without hearing about this mosquito-borne disease. In an effort to answer questions and provide up to the minute information to the public, the Darien Library will sponsor a “Zika Virus Public Forum” beginning at 7:00 on March 31st featuring presentations by David Knauf, Darien Director of Health, and Caleb Moore, MD, the Health Department’s Medical Advisor.

David Knauf and Caleb Moore have been serving the town in their current capacities since 2008. The mission of the Health Department is to prevent disease by promoting a safe community and healthy environment to all residents and visitors, while upholding public health based regulations which protect the quality of life.

One important component of their work is to provide timely advice to residents on protecting the health of themselves and their families. Plan on attending this timely discussion to be moderated by Jim Cameron of Channel 79 at the Darien Library.

No one challenged the slate of Republican candidates proposed by the Republican Town Committee at Tuesday night’s GOP Caucus, attended by fewer than 30 people in Town Hall Auditorium.

Board of Education Chairperson Michael Harman was not endorsed for re-election by the town committee and did not challenge that decision by becoming a petition candidate at the caucus. Board of Education member David Dineen was endorsed for re-election. Harman was the only incumbent rejected by the town committee.
