Please note the Department of Health has released the below:
Ross River Virus has now been detected within the south west. Environmental Health staff are again treating the area tomorrow but with the recent above average rainfall in the region and the amount of water lying around the District, mosquito control will be difficult this year. This is likely to result in higher than average numbers of mosquitoes and therefore a higher Ross River Virus and Barmah Forest Virus disease risk within the District.
Please protect yourself as follows:
- avoiding outdoor exposure particularly around dawn and dusk (and the first few hours after dark)
- wearing protective (long, loose-fitting, light coloured) clothing when outdoors
- applying a personal repellent containing 20% diethyl toluamide (DEET) or picaridin to exposed skin or clothing. The most effective and long-lasting formulations are lotions or gels. Natural or organic repellents may not be as effective as DEET or picaridin, or may need to be reapplied more frequently
- ensuring insect screens are installed and in good condition. The use of bed nets will offer further protection
- using mosquito nets or mosquito-proof tents when camping or sleeping outdoors
- ensuring infants and children are adequately protected against mosquito bites, preferably with suitable clothing, bed nets or other forms of insect screening.
