Highland Park stadium 'hand-fogged' for mosquitoes after sample comes up positive for West Nile virus
For those going out to football games tonight, bring some bug spray.
Here's a press release from Highland Park ISD:
Dear HPISD Parents & Community Members,
The City of University Park has been notified that a mosquito sample taken at Highland Park High School has tested positive for the West Nile virus. The City is continuing with its fogging and spraying program.
While no human cases of infection have been reported on campus, it is wise to take precautionary measures by using insect repellent containing DEET, especially during outdoor activities such as tonight's football game. Game officials will have insect repellent on hand for attendees to use as needed.
In advance of tonight's football game, the City has hand-fogged the stadium property. The City will fog the full campus on Saturday, September 7. Saturday's fogging will begin at 11 p.m. Treatment will include all campus storm drains. The City has been fogging all HPISD campuses that are located in University Park since May.
