The public is informed that fogging will continue in locality six today, December 12 and tomorrow, December 13 between 4:00 and 8:00 p.m. Areas to be fogged include Zion Hill, Little Apple Bay, Long Bay, Belmont Estate, Spy Glass Hill, Carrot Bay, Great Carrot Bay and Windy Hill.

Residents are urged to leave windows and doors open. Persons with respiratory illnesses, particularly asthma, should leave the areas being fogged for at least an hour.

Residents are reminded that fogging will provide only temporary relief from mosquitoes. Householders and property owners must therefore, be vigilant in preventing mosquitoes from breeding in stagnant water around their homes and businesses by carrying out weekly inspections.

For further information on how to control the Aedes aegypti mosquito, telephone the Vector Control Unit of the Environmental Health Division at 852-7782.
