Screening windows or keeping windows closed at sunset and sunrise can help prevent mosquitoes from entering the home. These are the prime times that mosquitoes feed. Residents should also avoid having containers that collect water in the yard; such containers should be properly sealed to avoid mosquito breeding sites.

Residents should get tested at the Polyclinic if any symptoms of dengue are noted.
