Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (70 ILCS 1005/8) (from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 81)
    Sec. 8. The board of trustees of any mosquito abatement district shall, in its work, advise and cooperate with the Department of Public Health of the State, and the board of trustees of such district shall submit to such Department, on or before January 1st of each year, a report of the work done and results obtained by the district during the preceding year.
    The board of trustees of any mosquito abatement district, or its designee, shall conduct routine surveillance of mosquitoes to detect the presence of mosquito-borne diseases of public health significance. The surveillance shall be conducted in accordance with mosquito abatement and control guidelines as set forth by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Areas reporting disease in humans shall be included in the surveillance activities. Mosquito abatement districts shall report to the local certified public health department the results of any positive mosquito samples infected with any arboviral infections, including, but not limited to: West Nile Virus, St. Louis Encephalitis, and Eastern Equine Encephalitis. Reports shall be made to the local certified public health department's director of environmental health, or a designee of the department, within 24 hours after receiving a positive report. The report shall include the type of infection, the number of mosquitoes collected in the trapping device, the type of trapping device used, and the type of laboratory testing used to confirm the infection. Any trustee of a mosquito abatement district, or designee of the board of trustees of a mosquito abatement district, that fails to comply with the requirements of this Act is guilty of a Class A Misdemeanor.
