WEST NILE VIRUS FOUND IN NORTHFIELD MOSQUITO SAMPLE
Atlantic County has reported finding a mosquito sample in Northfield that has tested positive for West Nile virus. This is the first confirmed positive mosquito sample found in Atlantic County this year, but health officials note it is not unusual to find positive samples during the summer and fall, and especially after significant rainfall.

In 2018, the first positive mosquito sample in Atlantic County was also found in July. Representatives from the Atlantic County Office of Mosquito Control collected the sample last week from the 1200 block of Zion Road in Northfield. County public health and mosquito control officials are conducting mosquito surveillance, implementing additional control measures and providing educational materials to area residents and businesses.

There are no reported human cases of the virus at this time, according to Patricia Diamond, Atlantic County Public Health Officer. Use the link provided for more information on the positive samples, as well as helpful information about how residents can protect themselves from mosquito-borne illness.

Rules for contest

HELP US MAKE RECYCLING WORK!
Catherine McCabe, Acting Commissioner of the NJ DEP says “For recycling to work, we need to keep our recycling mix clean and free of such non-acceptable and problematic items,” adding “It is important to remember that recyclable materials are not trash, but rather valuable raw materials used to make new products.”

Recycling also helps conserve resources, reduces waste sent to disposal facilities, helps curb emissions of greenhouse gases, and creates jobs.
