Baker Valley Vector Control District Operations During COVID-19
The challenges posed by the emergence of COVID-19 illustrate the importance of cooperation and partnership at all levels of government to protect public health. Baker Valley Vector Control District serves an essential role in public health with the control of mosquitoes, as well as surveillance for vector-borne illnesses that may present themselves throughout the district. Federal, state, and local agencies need to continue to work closely with each other to protect the public from vector-borne diseases such as West Nile virus.
Baker Valley Vector Control District takes the threat of COVID-19 seriously. We are following the social distancing protocols outlined by the WHO and CDC, as well as implementing policies of our own to slow the spread of COVID-19. While we are planning on moving forward with conducting our normal mosquito control and mosquito surveillance measures, we will be taking steps to limit our contact with the public.
Office is closed to the general public.
No face to face interaction during service requests.
