This is a listing of people in our region or Villages who are the immediate contacts for information or to relay questions. Please keep in mind that many of them are full-time employees with their own work to do. Nevertheless they are willing to help as much as they can.
Governmental employees may refer you first to their official agency speakers or to their agency webpages for information (see the category info sources). [Although special appropriation of federal funds has been directed to each state for use in H5N1 bird monitoring, it isn’t yet being used for local offices or extra personnel out here.]
