Default Can I take any precautions against chikungunya?

I heard that in Caribbean chikungunya is a problem. Can I do anything to prevent it?

Don't go to a place where there are confirmed cases is about the only precaution that is anywhere close to 100%. Keep exposed skin sprayed with "Off" while in those areas that are affected.

$2.99 and look like a goofball for a few hours or years of an excruciating disease...seems like a no brainer
