WEST NILE VIRUS ALERT

Did you know West Nile Virus is a compensable injury and workers should be protected by following our West Nile Virus Alert?

The West Nile Virus is here much earlier than is expected each year –with results showing more people are being infected with the Virus in many parts of Canada. People who work outside should take the following steps to reduce exposure to the Virus:

Protect yourself and your family from mosquito bites; and

Eliminate mosquito-breeding sites around your home and vacation property.

When going outdoors, use insect repellents that contain DEET or other approved ingredients.

Wear protective clothing such as long-sleeved shirts, long pants and a hat. Light coloured clothing is best because mosquitoes tend to be attracted to dark colours.

Make sure that door and window screens fit tightly and have no holes that may allow mosquitoes indoors.
