Zika Virus Facts:




When calling for assistance from NTDS, you MUST contact us within 48 hours of the event with a case report from law enforcement/fire department & we can not help if you have received assistance from another source (motel lodging & recovery aid) since our strict DUPLICATION OF SERVICES policy was adopted. This ensures that others can receive equal assistance and funding dollars are efficiently used.

Thank you!
