Dallas Confirms West Nile Case in HP

According to Highland Park, Dallas County Health and Human Services (DCHHS)  “has confirmed a positive human case for West Nile Fever for a resident that lives in the Town of Highland Park.”

Spraying started yesterday, and will continue through Friday, July 22. Ground spraying will be performed at public rights-of-way only, taking place between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.

So if you haven’t taken the appropriate precautionary steps, maybe now is the time to do so. Remember the four D’s people:

  • Drain standing water
  • Mosquitoes are most active at Dawn and Dusk
  • Dress appropriately in long sleeves and pants when you can (we don’t want people passing out from the heat)
  • Defend yourself with repellent

Be sure to read Park Cities People‘s story on Zika and West Nile from the April 2016 issue.

If you see standing water, you are asked to report it to the town online or at 214-521-4161. Information from DCHHS can be found online, or you can call 214-819-2100.
