West Nile Virus Still a RiskJanay Rickwalder
Wednesday, August 7, 2013
Summer is coming to a close, but mosquitoes
and West Nile virus is still a major concern to people throughout
Some areas of the country are reporting a rise in the
number of mosquitoes, yet very few cases of West Nile virus.
Other areas, such as
Los Angeles and
Massachusetts, are closing public areas to hopefully reduce the
risk of infection spreading to the general public.
To reduce your risk of contracting a mosquito-borne disease, be
sure to empty any containers of standing water on your property and
reduce outdoor activity between dusk and dawn.
