ATHERTON — Parts of Atherton and Redwood City will be fogged starting midnight Fri after mosquitoes found in Atherton tested positive today for West Nile virus.

It’s the 2nd time this 30 days the virus has been detected in Atherton.

The San Mateo County Mosquito and Vector Control District announced it will conduct truck-mounted mosquito fogging from midnight to five in the morning Sat in a primarily residential area of western Atherton and in Redwood City’s Oakwood neighborhood.

Mosquitoes will be collected again after the treatment is finished. If samples are found to still be carrying the virus, additional fogging may be needed, according to the district.
