As part of its continuing efforts to reduce the presence of the aedes aegypti mosquito, the Vector Control Unit of the Ministry of Health has extended its fogging programme this week to include Saturday, February 4.
The team is scheduled to visit Rices, St. Philip, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.
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 prohibit their children from playing in the fog or running behind the fogging machine.
