The Ministry of Health’s Vector Control Unit will continue its fogging programme this Thursday, June 14, as part of its efforts to reduce the presence of the deadly aedes aegypti mosquito on the island.

Fogging will be done in some districts in St. James.?? These are Prior Park, Prior Park Terrace, Prior Park Gardens, Halls Village #1 & #2, Bagatelle Road, Hoyte’s New Development, Thorpes, Denny Road, Halls Village and the surrounding areas.

Fogging will begin at 4:30 and end at 7:30 p.m. each day, and householders are asked to assist in the elimination of the deadly aedes aegypti mosquito by opening windows and doors to allow the fog to penetrate.

Persons with respiratory problems should protect themselves from inhaling the fog, while pedestrians and motorists must proceed with caution when encountering fogging operations on the street.

Parents are advised to prevent their children from playing in the fog or running behind the fogging machine.
