District Closure & Service Modification
March 2020 - Per the California Department of Public Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the District is taking the following proactive measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19:
- Temporary closure of the District Office to the public
- Reducing all non-essential District programs such as rodent Inspections, insect identification, school education program, outreach events, and presentations of all types
The District will continue to conduct mosquito surveillance and control operations throughout the service area. These activities will be conducted with little to no public contact. Please note that mosquito & vector control programs and services may be modified to adhere to recommendations or directives from local and state officials.
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and ensure the health and safety of our employees and residents in Marin and Sonoma counties, District staff will respond only to service requests of an urgent nature.
Service for non-urgent service requests will be provided as soon as possible after precautions for COVID-19 have been lifted.
If you believe you have an urgent mosquito or vector related issue, please notify the District promptly via telephone (707-285-2200) or online. Residents may still report areas of concern, such as standing water on adjacent lands, public lands etc., and adult mosquito problems.
When responding to urgent service requests our staff will avoid face to face interaction and implement social distancing or utilize cell phones for communication. While our vector control technicians will be responding to individual service requests on a limited basis, they will continue to conduct mosquito surveillance and control work as necessary on breeding sources such as small and large-scale fresh water and tidal habitats, ponds and stormwater conveyance systems on public lands and agricultural operations.
