Due to recent weather conditions, the City of Laramie will continue fogging residential areas between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. on Friday, July 10 and Saturday, July 11 in an effort to reduce the mosquito population as we head into more seasonal weather this weekend. The late start times for the weekend fogging are meant to minimize conflict with public events and allow Laramie citizens to return to their homes without being affected by the fogging.

At press time, there are no West Nile Virus cases have been confirmed in Albany County. In addition, the City of Laramie has established the risk of infection at Level 1, which is labeled as "Low Risk." This number is based moderately on the number of vector mosquitoes, and there has been no West Nile Virus activity reported in the bird and mosquito activity in the Laramie area.
