Areas in the heart of Bridgetown will receive some heavy fogging from tomorrow, Wednesday, June 8 to Thursday, June 9.
The team from the Vector Control Unit of the Ministry of Health will start with Mason Hall Street, Lakes Folly, Emmerton Lane and their environs and move to New Orleans and surrounding avenues and districts on June 9.?? Fogging will run from 4:30 until 8:30 p.m.
This fogging operation forms part of the Health Ministry’s mosquito surveillance activities and is aimed at reducing the Aedes Aegyti mosquitoes and by extension dengue fever, in these areas.
Residents are asked to cooperate with the officials and are reminded to open 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 also instructed to prohibit children from playing in the fog or running behind the fogging machine.
