The Licking County Health Department will be conducting more sprays for mosquitoes.

West Main Street and Tamarack Road in Newark will be targeted on Monday, August 2nd, followed by Harbor Hills on Wednesday, and the Village of Kirkersville, Hartford Fairgrounds, and the KOA Campground in Buckeye Lake on Thursday. Crews plan to go out after dusk.

Licking County was the second county in the state to report the West Nile Virus in mosquitoes. Both cases came from pools of mosquitoes taken in the city of Newark.
