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.
- 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.
- 400 mosquito traps were set throughout San Gabriel Valley, capturing low to average numbers compared to the same weeks in previous years.
