There's been a lot in the news lately about the Zika virus. Although we are not at great risk in this area, in this part of the US, you want to keep using insect repellent when out in the woods and grassy fields all year round. Ticks in this area can carry Lyme Disease and mosquitoes can carry West Nile Virus. Why give them a chance to bite you?
Our Next PVAS Monthly Program
PVAS's next monthly program will be held on Wednesday, May 11, at 7 p.m, at Hospice of the Panhandle in Kearneysville (GPS: Hospice Lane is opposite the Food Lion, 50 Coast Guard Dr., Kearneysville WV (on old Route 9), not the old location in Martinsburg). Please see hospiceotp.org for directions to their new facility.
