District Announcement

Mosquito-borne disease prevention and tips are available by clicking on the RI Department of Health Website:   health.ri.gov/disease/carriers/mosquitoes/

The Department of Environmental Management (DEM) and the Rhode Island Department of Health (HEALTH) issue press releases for the public with similar prevention messages and reminders about mosquito bite protection, and share the latest positive test results for mosquito-borne disease. DEM posts positive findings from mosquito test pools at http://www.dem.ri.gov/news/. Last week two positive findings were reported from sample mosquito pools in West Kingston and Tiverton. (See http://www.dem.ri.gov/news/2014/pr/0909141.htm). As in years past, HEALTH and DEM will alert the public and schools in the event that any recommendations for precautions change. Mosquito activity each year usually lasts through the annual first hard frost in the fall.
