Short Bites Monthly

November 2020

Thanks to feedback from Bite Back Champions, we are piloting a monthly digest of what's happening at San Gabriel Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District (SGVMVCD). This is another step in ensuring that our data as a public health agency remains transparent to the public and to people who are interested in our mission.

In your community

  • There are currently no reports of human cases with West Nile virus in San Gabriel Valley. Great job!
  • More than 1,300 public and private sites recieved inspection, treatment, and support.

In education

  • At-home, citizen science projects were completed by San Gabriel Valley students, who now have increased knowledge about how to stop mosquitoes from growing at home.
  • Over 33,000 people engaged with our online material on mosquito-borne illnesses, and what they can do to stay safe.
