According to the Assumption Parish Police Jury and OEP’s Facebook Page, 22 mosquito pool samples were submitted for virus testing last week and one sample did test positive for West Nile Virus. The positive sample came from a trap located at Veterans Park.
Additional spraying in that targeted area will start tonight and continue through Wednesday night. We highly encourage residents in that area as well as throughout the parish to be vigilant about mosquito protection. Sample testing will continue throughout the parish through the season.
