The Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito and Vector Control District is committed to protecting public health and we are taking proactive measures to protect our staff and residents by helping to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). As a protective measure, we are closing our offices to the public, however service requests can still be submitted online at https://www.fightthebite.net/services/service-form/.
We will continue to provide essential services such as mosquito surveillance, inspections, and control to prevent mosquito-transmitted diseases. Mosquitoes are vectors of several diseases including West Nile virus, however it is important to remember that COVID-19 is not transmitted by the bite of mosquitoes.
We will continue to monitor, assess and adjust our operations as conditions change. We encourage you to follow the CDC and your local public health department guidelines about slowing the spread of COVID-19.
