Riverside County Public Health Officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser has determined that tuberculosis test results at Indio High School from about 100 students were within the normal levels health that officials expect to find in the general public. At this time, testing will not be expanded to other students or staff.
Riverside County has become the nation’s first large county to meet “functional zero,” a federal benchmark for making permanent housing available for all homeless veterans who seek assistance from the county.
A student at Indio High School has been diagnosed with active tuberculosis and Riverside County health officials are working with school representatives to identify students and staff who might have been exposed to the illness.
Due to recent public complaints about mosquito bites and an increase in the number of mosquitos trapped in the Beaumont area during routine surveillance, Riverside County will apply an ultra-low volume of a material designed to reduce adult mosquito populations in two separate areas of the city.
The Idyllwild grinding facility will be open Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays effective Sept. 2. Greenwaste will be accepted between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. but the facility is closed from noon to 1 p.m. for lunch. The facility will be closed the remainder of the week, including Saturdays.
A 73-year-old woman who lives in western Riverside County is the first confirmed human case of West Nile virus in the county this year, said Dr. Cameron Kaiser, the county’s public health officer.
Due to a sample of mosquitos testing positive for West Nile virus and increased mosquito numbers, Riverside County Environmental Health Vector Control Program will spray in Nuevo on Monday, August 8, 2016. The area is Hemet Model Masters Airfield and Mystic Field.
