You can’t get sick from the bite, but you can feel sick if you have a fever and nausea, or if you cough up blood.
But you should be fine, says Dr. Michael Ruediger, the county’s public health director.
“We don’t have any evidence that any of the people we’ve treated have had any of these symptoms.”
The county has not yet tested its mosquitos, but the county mosquito control team has a new protocol, so if you come down with one in the future, you’re not out of luck.
The team is also doing testing to try to detect other types of mosquito, such as dengue, chikungunya, and Zika.
Ruedigers said the county will begin doing testing for deng, chicha, and the new Zika, and will release that information to the public in the coming weeks.
But he did say that, until then, people who are bitten by mosquitoes will be monitored with a mask, gown, and gloves.
And if they need more treatment, the health department will have them wear face masks.
If you’ve got questions about the mosquitoes, you can call Sonoma’s mosquito control hotline at (707) 848-3300 or visit the county office.
