(DUBLIN, Ohio) – Mosquito traps set weekly throughout Franklin County found positive West Nile Virus in the Bridge Street District and southeast Dublin. As a result of this positive finding, the Franklin County Public Health will be spraying portions of Dublin Wednesday, July 18 (weather permitting) at 9 p.m.
It is a good reminder for residents to take precautionary steps to protect themselves and their families.
- Wear insect repellant containing DEET (follow package directions).
- Limit outdoor activity at dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active.
- Eliminate all standing water around your home (mosquitoes breed in water and it doesn’t take much time).
