As a result of the reportedly high prevalence of mosquitoes in some St. Peter districts, the Vector Control Unit of the Ministry of Health will carry out emergency fogging in that parish next week, on Monday, May 21, and Tuesday, May 22.
The team will target Golden Mile, Golden Mile Terrace, Church Street Gardens, Heywoods Gardens, Church Road, Six Men’s Development and their surroundings on Monday, May 21.
The following day, Tuesday, May 22, emphasis will be placed on Diamond Corner, Castle, Boscobelle, Mount No. 1 & 2, Gays, Collins, The Baltic, Date Tree Hill and the environs.
Fogging will be from 4:30 until 7:30 p.m. and householders are asked to assist 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 instructed to prohibit children from playing in the fog or running behind the fogging machine.
