Health Issues: Kim updated the committee on West Nile and Zika Viruses & Lyme Disease. The Health Dept. does test dead birds for the West Nile virus. They have found a crow that tested positive in the Fond du Lac area in May. Everyone should be more vigilant to avoid mosquitos/protection against bites. 20% of people bitten by mosquitoes carrying the virus have the potential of having a severe reaction. We should also be vigilant to prevent tick bites – avoid direct contact, use repellent, and/or find & remove ticks from your body or your pets.
Meeting adjourned 8:45 am (Tom/Rick K.)
Next meeting: Wed, July 19, 8:15 am in Room F
