Latest Mosquito Fogging Schedule Released Following Louisville West Nile Death

The latest schedule for mosquito fogging has been released following the recent death of a Louisville resident from the West Nile disease.

Areas to be fogged as part of the Public Health and Wellness program include those surrounded Bluegrass Ave., Inverness Ave., S. 4th Street, and Lonsdale Ave in the Southern Parkway area and Alta Ave., Saratoga Dr., Rutherford Ave., and Newburg Rd. in the Highlands.

Mosquitoes testing positive for West Nile were collected in ZIP codes 40205, 40208, 40211, 40212, 40214, 40215, 40216 and 40272.  Earlier this week, the Kentucky Department for Public Health confirmed a death from the West Nile virus in a Louisville resident and has confirmed one other non-fatal Louisville case.

“West Nile infected mosquitoes are present throughout the community, and people should take the appropriate precautions,” said Dr. Joann Schulte, director of the Louisville Department of Public Health and Wellness.
