PREVENT MOSQUITO BITES AND MOSQUITO-BORNE DISEASES
The Chester County Health Department recently notified us that 2018 is evidencing an increased mosquito presence. Mosquito bites can cause illnesses such as the West Nile virus and Zika virus. Visit the County’s website to learn how to make both you and your home a “Bite-Free Zone.” Also they encourage residents to regularly check the West Nile Virus web page to monitor if mosquitoes with this virus have been detected in their municipality.
WARNING FROM WEST CHESTER POLICE
Due to a recent increase of thefts from vehicles by breaking windows to gain entry, the West Chester Police cautions all residents not to leave anything of value in your vehicle, especially in plain sight, even if your car is locked. If you must leave possessions in your vehicle, place them in a locked glove compartment or locked in the trunk.
