From the Elkhart County Health Department

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact:  Carrie Brunson, Environmental Supervisor or Karla Kreczmer, Manager

Phone:  (574) 971-4600

 

August 30, 2019

 

            The Elkhart County Health Department (ECHD) is renewing an earlier warning regarding the threat of mosquito borne illnesses.  ECHD has received notice from the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) that the occurrence of mosquito samples testing positive for West Nile Virus (WNV) were collected in numerous locations throughout Elkhart County. Additionally we have been notified of the presence of Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) in Elkhart County as well as southern Michigan. 

 

Thus, it is important that Elkhart County residents continue to be vigilant to protect themselves from mosquitoes.  Although we have experienced cooler temperatures in the last week the potential still exists for individuals to be impacted by West Nile Virus or another mosquito borne diseases.  Mosquitoes will remain active at temperatures above 60 degrees F and tend to be more active in the evening and pre-dawn hours.  Common precautions include: staying indoors when mosquitoes are active, utilizing an EPA registered insect repellent and wearing long sleeved shirts and pants in areas of high mosquito activity.  Be vigilant and remember to check your property for mosquito breeding sites.  Empty containers that are holding water, unclog gutters, keep overgrown vegetation mowed, dispose of old tires and maintain screens in doorways and windows.  In addition, swimming pools should be maintained clean and operational; ornamental ponds should be aerated to prevent the collection of mosquito larvae. 

 

West Nile Virus transmission tends to be higher in the early fall while Eastern Equine Encephalitis can be seen in the late summer.  This in part is due to the factors previously mentioned and amplification of the disease in the various wildlife reservoirs.  It is not uncommon for people to become infected even when mosquito activity seems to be nonexistent.  Precautions taken now may prevent serious illness and in rare cases, needless loss of life.
