Mosquito-borne diseases impact the health of Arizonans every year. The most common mosquito-borne disease in Arizona is West Nile Virus (WNV), spread to people by the bite of an infected mosquito. There have been 16 cases of WNV in Arizona so far this year (2021) and a total of 4 confirmed cases in Pinal County since 2018. Given this year’s monsoon season with more water than in previous years, we do anticipate seeing some human cases of West Nile Virus. For more information on West Nile Virus in Arizona, see the ADHS website: https://www.azdhs.gov/preparedness/epidemiology-disease-control/mosquito-borne/west-nile-virus/index.php See the flyers for details and how you can prevent WNV.

Pinal County Public Health Services District (PCPHSD) Environmental Health Division will conduct mosquito fogging in several areas of Pinal County starting Thursday, August 19, 2021 running through Saturday, August 21, 2021 from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. each night. Each area will be fogged all three days. The areas to be fogged include: • Maricopa - the Maricopa Meadows Subdivision. • North of the Town of Florence – Oasis @ Magic Ranch Subdivision and the adjacent nearby acreage properties. • Arizona City – the area encompassing Alsdorf Road to the north, Sunland Gin Road to the east, Phillips Road to the south, and Squatter Road to the west. See post for more details.

 
During seasonal mosquito surveillance the Pinal County Public Health Services District (PCPHSD) has continued to detect West Nile Virus (WNV) positive mosquitoes in the county - help prevent mosquito related illness.

Breastmilk storage tips:

💧Freeze milk in small amounts of 2 to 4 ounces to avoid waste. 
💧Store milk in the back of the freezer or refrigerator, not the door.
💧When freezing leave an inch of space at the top of the container; breast milk expands as it freezes.
💧Milk can be stored in an insulated cooler bag with frozen ice packs for up to 24 hours.
💧If you don't plan to use freshly expressed milk within 4 days, freeze it right away.
