FIGHT THE WEST NILE BITE – PROTECT AGAINST MOSQUITOS
Three cases of West Nile virus have been confirmed in Maricopa County this summer. The cases serve as a reminder to take steps to prevent mosquito breeding and avoid mosquito bites. If you work outdoors, apply insect repellent and wear long-sleeves and pants to avoid mosquito bites. Residents are encouraged to take steps to protect their home, like draining standing water, installing screens and keeping water sources free from debris and properly working.
