CICERO, N.Y. -- Onondaga County is taking steps to prevent the spread of the EEE Virus.
On Saturday, officials conducted aerial spraying over the Cicero Swamp and the surrounding areas. The spraying comes after evidence of the EEE Virus was found in two mosquito pools near the swamp.
Residents with vegetable gardens in the spray area are urged to wash anything thoroughly before eating it. Health officials also suggest getting rid of any standing water you may have on your property to help fight the mosquito populations from growing.
