BOARD OF HEALTH SUMMARY REPORT
July, 2017

EH August 8, 2017 summary:

The 2017 West Nile Virus program has completed the first round of aerial flights. The Cheyenne airport proved to be a good location to speed up the process and shorten the deadhead time.

Fly control continued through July and to date we have placed 124 Trap n Toss, put out 11 billion nematodes and placed 18 bags of parasitic wasps. Our fly control will continue through the County Fair and into September.

The property conveyance program is maintaining its strong run as we are very busy with the increase over last year. Oil wells are increasing slowly with several rigs drilling.

EH is in the 45 day comment period to complete change of the Massage Regulations to eliminate Tb skin testing and the City is proceeding with eliminating a medical exam for permit renewal. We will add that dimension to our public hearing slated for the BOH meeting in August.

The Division survived Cheyenne Frontier Days and is preparing for County Fair and the Solar Eclipse.

We had our last meeting with the County EMA and the State of Wyoming on the upcoming Solar Eclipse event, which is slated for August 21, 2017. We will work with the County EMA as they stand up their Emergency Operation Center for the Solar Eclipse.

The statistical form for monthly numbers is attached.
