Mosquitos in six testing locations around Naperville have tested positive for West Nile Virus.

Due to those findings along with other mosquito batches testing positive throughout DuPage County, the DuPage County Health Department has set their Personal Protection Index to two, indicating a moderate risk.

To protect yourself, officials recommend you drain standing water around your yard, wear long pants and long sleeves, and use insect repellent with DEET.
