West Nile Found Again

A mosquito sample in Will County tested positive for West Nile Virus. The Will County Health Department Environmental Division reports that the sample was taken from a trap in the Manhattan area. This is the fifth positive sample taken in the county, with other positive traps being from Plainfield, Lockport, and Joliet. Residents are reminded to wear long sleeves and pants, shoes and socks, and insect repellent containing DEET when out during peak mosquito hours of dusk to dawn. Also remember to remove standing water from your property where mosquitos could lay eggs. Symptoms of West Nile Virus are very similar to the flu. More information can be found on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
