San Gabriel Valley, Calif. (April 16, 2020) – The increased attention on COVID-19 is a reminder of the many ways people can protect themselves from other public health concerns, including viruses spread through mosquito bites.
The San Gabriel Valley Mosquito & Vector Control District (SGVMVCD) joins mosquito control programs across the state to promote California Mosquito Awareness Week, April 19-25. This statewide campaign empowers residents to prevent mosquitoes year-round.
Mosquito control officials encourage residents under Safer-at-Home orders in Los Angeles County to take this opportunity to curb mosquito populations around the home.
