West Nile Virus Program
All townships within the County of
Simcoe, including Ramara Township, participate in the West Nile Virus
program through the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit and the Ministry
of Environment. The Health Unit samples and monitors selected sites
throughout the County and provides a Public Education Program. Ramara
Township has trained staff ready to larvicide if directed by the Medical
Officer of Health. To date Ramara has not been required to larvicide.
