The New York State Department of Health announced Thursday it will begin issuing the results of seasonal mosquito surveillance and testing statewide including Zika.

The department conducts surveillance for mosquito-borne viruses that pose a risk to human health. These activities are performed in cooperation with local health departments.

According to the Health Department, New York's surveillance and testing program has been in effect since the 1970's, making the system one of the most mature, robust and reliable in the nation.
