Bucks County officials announced changes to mosquito sprayings that will take place in the county this week, rescheduling a spraying that was to take place in Penndel on Monday and adding another one to the schedule, in Bristol Township, for Wednesday.

The sprayings are an effort to reduce mosquito populations and potential instances of West Nile Virus in the county, officials said. There are now three sprayings scheduled this week; full details on locations and times are available below.

According to a state website, there have been no reported human cases of West Nile Virus in Pennsylvania this year.

About 70 to 80 percent of those who suffer from the virus receive no symptoms, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, but it can be fatal: there were 286 deaths nationwide last year, according to agency statistics, four in Pennsylvania.

Per county press releases, here are the specifics on this week's sprayings:

Falls Township - Tuesday, July 23, between 7:45 p.m. and 10:45 p.m.

The areas to be sprayed include the North Park section of Levittown (all streets between Northpark Drive and Falls Tullytown Road) as well as a portion of the Nottingham Village section of Fallsington, including Nottingham Drive, Nottingham Court, Jensen Drive, Nancia Drive, Taylor Drive, Robin Hood Drive, Sherwood Drive and Marion Road.

Bristol Township - Wednesday, July 24, 7:45 p.m.

The borders of the area to be sprayed are Neshaminy State Park to the south, Route 413 to the north, the Delaware River to the east and Route 13 to the west. The following streets by the Delhaas Woods will also be sprayed: Balfour, Bowman, Mayfair, Lois, Glenrich, Butler, Brookside, Century and Green avenues and Winton Drive and Circle, and Laurel Drive.

Penndel - Thursday, July 25, between 7:45 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
