IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR : THIS IS A VERY CRITICAL TIME IN OUR COMMUNITY, OUR STATE, OUR COUNTRY. THE ONLY WAY WE CAN PREVENT OR SLOW THE SPREAD OF COVID-19 IS WITH YOUR HELP, AND THAT MEANS LIMITING EXPOSURE TO OTHER PEOPLE.
CITY AND COUNTY ELECTED OFFICIALS AND OTHER LEADERS ARE STANDING WITH THE MOBILE COUNTY HEALTH OFFICER, DR. BERNARD H. EICHOLD II, AND OTHER DISEASE CONTROL EXPERTS RECOMMENDING THAT YOU STAY AT HOME AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. THIS MEANS AVOIDING PHYSICAL CONTACT WITH FRIENDS, FAMILY AND STRANGERS WHERE THE TRANSMISSION OF COVID-19 CAN OCCUR.
WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO GET SOME FRESH AIR AND SOME OUTDOOR EXERCISE, BUT WE ALL MUST ALTER OUR ROUTINES. AVOID CASUAL VISITS, AND DON’T GO PLACES THAT AREN’T REALLY NECESSARY.

I’M ASKING FOR YOUR HELP. LET’S BEAT COVID-19 TOGETHER. STAY AT HOME AS MUCH AS YOU CAN UNLESS IT IS REALLY NECESSARY.

*Notice : Mobile County Health Department - Eastern Equine Encephalitis
The Mobile County Health Department (MCHD) recently reported that Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) was detected in a sentinel chicken on Dauphin Island. These types of tests are checked weekly and MCHD is taking necessary actions to reduce and/or eliminate this health risk. Additional sprayings are underway via land-based vehicles and airplane
along with other treatments to reduce the mosquito population. Health officials have also reached out to island property owners to notify them that previously requested “no spray” areas will be temporarily suspended.
Mosquitoes are most active during the early morning and evening time periods. You can reduce your exposure as follows; (a) Use an EPA-registered repellent with DEET (b) Wear long pants and long-sleeved shirts when outdoors (c) Stay/sleep in places with air conditioning and/or window and door screens and (d) Empty/remove standing water within your property.
To report an issue with mosquitoes, contact Vector Services at (251) 690-8124. For additional information visit http://MCHD.org and click on Vector Control listed under “Services”.
