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. Peter Forman Commissioner Port Washington-Manhasset Office of Emergency Management
