A bite from an infected mosquito can spread West Nile Virus, an infection that can cause serious illness, and in some cases, death. Your chances of getting sick are small, but those 50 and older are at the highest risk for serious illness. If you have a swimming pool or spa that’s not in use, drain the water off the cover or treat the standing water with Mosquito Dunks, which are available for free at the Health Department in Pomona, Monday – Friday from 9 am to 4 pm, while supplies last.
