Delta Vector Control District officials recently found St. Louis Encephalitis and West Nile Virus in mosquitoes locally.
Tulare County Health and Human Services and Delta Vector staff are asking residents to avoid mosquito bites.
“It is imperative that residents take the necessary precautions to prevent being bitten by mosquitoes and report any incidence of mosquito presence,” health officials stated.
Residents should be on the lookout for any “potential breeding grounds” around their home. Any container with as little as a few inches of water standing for more than three days makes for a good mosquito breeding source, health officials said.
