West Nile Spraying Wednesday, Aug 20th

Dear Residents, Please be aware that tonight Nassau County will be spraying for West Nile Virus by truck from 8 PM to 4 AM in Flower Hill, Munsey Park, Plandome Hts, Plandome, and the portion of Port Washington that is south of Main St. Recognized recommendations: - Individuals, especially pregnant women and children, should remain inside during the treatment period and for about 30 minutes afterwards. One should also: - Keep windows and doors shut. Set air conditioner to recirculate, if able. Turn window fans off. - Keep children’s toys indoors. - Keep pets indoors, as well as their food, water dishes and toys. Since the effects of the ground treatment dissipate in a few hours, it is not necessary to wash off outdoor furniture or playground equipment before use, although doing so will not diminish the effectiveness of the pesticide applied.
