Emergency fogging of some St. Michael districts will occur tomorrow, Thursday, May 17 and Friday, May 18.
The team from the Vector Control Unit will begin the fogging tomorrow, Thursday, May 17, at Brandons Beach, Brighton, Spring Garden Highway, Pile Bay, Carlton, Carlton Terrace, Black Rock Main Road, Strakers Tenantry, Carters Gap, Danesbury, Retreat and their surroundings.
The following day, Friday, May 18, emphasis will be placed on Long Gap with Avenues, Pillersdorf Development, Piedmont Park and the environs.
According to the Ministry of Health, the fogging exercise is being done as a result of a reportedly high incidence of mosquitoes in these areas.
It will run 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.
