GLACVCD Reports Positive West Nile Virus

The Greater Los Angeles County Vector Control District reports that six people have tested positive for West Nile Virus. One person was from Glendale and one fatality was in the San Fernando Valley. There is an increase in mosquito activity since the rain event a few weeks back. It is advised that any water sources in yards be empties.

“Anything the size of a teaspoon of stagnant water can breed mosquitos,” said Trustee Steve Goldsworthy of the Greater Los Angeles County Vector Control District. “If you can’t find the water source, call for a technician to check your property at no cost.”
