Even if no precautions are required, are there extra steps people can choose to take if they are still concerned?

Although not necessary, steps that can be followed in areas where aerial spraying is scheduled to take place include:

  • Close windows
  • Stay inside and keep pets indoors during spraying.
  • If clothes or outdoor items are exposed during spraying, wash them with soap and water.
  • No special precaution or waiting periods are needed for outdoor swimming pools.
