    LBUSD Sends Updated West Nile Virus Prevention Tips To Principals for Distribution to Staff & Parents; We Post Text

    (July 9. 2004) -- At the request of LB's Dept. of Health and Human Services, the LB Unified School District has sent updated West Nile Virus Prevention tips to principals for distribution to staff and parents.

    We post its succinct text below:

    [begin text]

    West Nile virus signs have been posted at the Lakewood Golf Course and Bolivar Park in Lakewood. This week, warning signs will be posted in El Dorado Regional and Heartwell Park after mosquito pools tested positive nearby. Mosquitoes there that bite infected birds can transmit the virus to humans and animals. Most people with West Nile virus experience no symptoms. Some may become ill, experiencing flu-like symptoms, fever, headache, nausea, skin rash or swollen lymph nodes. Symptoms can last up to three weeks. Less than 1% of those infected may have neurological symptoms. It is estimated that 1 in 150 people who are infected will require hospitalization.

    1. If you see a dead bird, especially a crow, call the Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services (LBDHHS) Animal Control at (562) 570-7387.

    2. If you see standing water that would be a breeding place for mosquitoes, eliminate it. If it needs to be sprayed for mosquitoes, call the LBDHHS Vector Control at (562) 570-4132.

    3. Mosquitoes are most active at dawn or dusk. Wear loose light colored, long-sleeved shirts and pants outdoors.

    4. Use mosquito repellant containing DEET.

    5. Keep screens on doors and windows to prevent mosquitoes from entering your home.

    You may share this information with parents and staff.

    The updated information follows LBUSD's West Nile Virus prevention tips sent to its adminsitrators on June 23.
