Letter: What are you doing about Zika?

My family vacations to Hilton Head Island annually and spends about $20,000 per week. We are concerned about the Zika Virus making its way north to Hilton Head.

Zika is currently in Florida. Several Florida destinations are taking preventative measures. What is Hilton Head doing to prevent Zika and the fears associated and potential economic impact it could have on the island? I know the Zika is still many, many miles away, but it is better to be proactive in this area. In fact Hilton Head could benefit economically from the Zika fears further south.
