West Nile virus is transmitted through the bite of a mosquito that has picked up the virus by feeding on an infected bird. The individual confirmed to have West Nile Virus was diagnosed with the less severe form of the illness. Mosquito activity does slow down as temperatures drop, but until our area experiences a hard freeze, personal protection measures need to be taken.
Adults 50 years or older and those with weakened immune symptoms are at risk of developing more severe symptoms such as acute headache, high fever, stiff neck, nausea or vomiting, difficulty swallowing or confusion.
Defend yourself by using EPA approved repellent. About one in five people who are infected develop a fever and other symptoms and about one in 150 infected people develop a serious, sometimes fatal, illness. In addition to treating that area for those mosquitoes, they also test the chickens weekly to help monitor their progress. Health officials are reminding the public to practice the three "R's" - reduce exposure, repel when outdoors, and report stagnant water locations. Make sure door and window screens fit tightly and all holes are repaired. Fix or replace screens that have tears or other openings.
