The Vector Control Unit of the Ministry of Health will, this Saturday, May 14, be conducting fogging activities in and around the environs of Wellington Street, Spruce Street, King William Street, Vine Street, Queens Street, Beckwith Street and Bay Street, all in St. Michael.
This fogging operation forms part of the Health Ministry’s mosquito surveillance activities and is aimed at reducing the number of Aedes Aegyti mosquitoes and by extension dengue fever, in these areas.
Fogging runs from 4:30 until 7:30 p.m.
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. ??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.
