Bird tests positive for West Nile virus in Milwaukee County

Mosquitoes test positive for West Nile virus in Winnebago County

West Nile virus is most commonly spread to people by the bite of an infected mosquito, according to the CDC.

Mosquitoes tested positive for West Nile in Kentucky and Missouri, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, but county-level data isn't available for those states.

At this time, no human cases have been confirmed in any Coastal Health district county, which includes Glynn and Chatham counties. About 1 in 5 people who are infected will develop mild symptoms, like a fever, headache and body aches.

"Twenty-three more mosquito samples from that area came back positive, which is what prompted us to make our decision for aerial spraying", vector control spokeswoman Luz Maria Robles said. People are encouraged to contact the Grant County Health District at 509-766-7960 if they see dead birds around the county.

You can get more information on preventing mosquito bites on the Division of Public Health's website.

Right now, lab tests in the western part of North Dakota are showing an abundance of mosquitoes carrying West Nile.

WNV is transmitted to humans and animals by the bite of an infected mosquito. Limit the number of places around your home for mosquitoes to breed by either draining or getting rid of items that hold water. Change the water in pet dishes and replace the water in ver baths weekly.

Wear shoes, socks, long trousers, and a long-sleeved shirt when outdoors for long periods, or when mosquitoes are most active.

When you are outdoors, use insect repellent containing an EPA-registered active ingredient on skin and clothing, including DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR3535.

Minimize time spent outdoors between dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active.

If you use sunscreen, apply sunscreen first and inspect repellent second. Drill holes in tire swings so water drains out.
