The most high-risk parts of Kansas are actually the western two-thirds of the state, according to KDHE, while northeast Kansas is at "moderate risk".
Health officials in Westchester County say mosquitoes in the area have tested positive for West Nile virus. The Kansas health department said about 1 in 150 people infected develop a more serious version of the disease.
There are no vaccines or medications to treat West Nile, the KDHE said.
West Nile virus is spread to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito.
The best way to prevent getting West Nile is to wear long sleeves and trousers and use insect repellant, especially at dusk and dawn, when mosquitoes are most active. Follow the directions on the package.
Wear shoes, socks, long trousers, and a long-sleeved shirt when outdoors for long periods, or when mosquitoes are most active. "Residents should use insect repellent, drain standing water around the home and take extra care during peak mosquito-biting hours between dusk and dawn".
