The Florida Department of Health in Duval County (DOH-Duval) announced Thursday morning that there has been an increase in mosquito-borne disease activity in the area.

It’s Florida primary election day. We heard from WJCT’s Ryan Benk from a local voting precinct to see how the day was going. Host Melissa Ross spoke with local officials about how Duval County is battling mosquito-borne viruses. We also heard from GlobalJax about their upcoming fundraiser, “Wines of the World,” and the latest issue of Flamingo Magazine features an interview with Jacksonville musician J.J. Grey. We spoke with publisher Jamie Rich.
