Can mosquitoes transmit the coronavirus?

The CDC reports that:

  • Not all types of viruses can be spread by mosquitoes and ticks. ​
  • At this time, we have no data to suggest that COVID-19 or other similar coronaviruses (e.g. SARS, MERS) are spread by mosquitoes or ticks.

Public Health and the Mosquito Control District work together to control mosquitos in Clark County. District activities are guided by the work plan adopted by the Mosquito Control Board of Trustees to address mosquito nuisance abatement and threats of West Nile Virus.
