Default Stop tomato curly top virus

Had virus on 5 plants first of year.Pulled them out and replanted.I use 5' concrete wire by 2' diameter, 13 squares cir.. Ordered frost cloth and cut and placed over each cage.Covered top and down 2 squares.I used wood clothes pins and very light weight aluminum wire to attach the covers.
No virus in last 2 months.Garden looks strange but appears to be working.
May help us, try and see.Frost cover not shade cloth.
Hope this may help.
Rick
