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
