The District is asking citizens If you must be outdoors --- wear repellent, cover exposed skin and avoid outdoor activity when mosquitoes are most active. Remember, repellents with 30% DEET or less are labeled for use on children 2 years or older when applied according to instructions and by a parent. Weather conditions are expected to be favorable.
