“Some jurisdictions have reported an increase in rodent activity as rodents seek new sources of food.
Residents and businesses are urged to take preventive measures to eliminate conditions that may attract and support the presence of rodents.
These actions include closing access to buildings, removing debris and thick vegetation, keeping garbage in tightly closed bins, and eliminating pet and bird food from their yards.
The CDC provides more information and guidelines on its website.
