The Following message was received from the Northumberland County Conservation District:
I am writing to inform you that we have detected West Nile Virus in Riverside Borough.
The Mosquito Borne Disease Control team at the district is keeping a very close eye on the area and we have been treating mosquito breeding areas with larvae present. We have since set multiple adult mosquito traps to get a better idea of virus activity in the area, as well as adult mosquito populations. Residents may find doorhangers on their doors that outline ways that they can reduce breeding habitat in their own yards as well as other ways to protect themselves; these doorhangers have the districts information on them if they have any further questions.
Even though there is a low risk of disease transmission, I am still encouraging residents to:
Avoid peak mosquito hours by staying indoors.
