The Dickinson County Public Health Director says the mosquitoes infected with West Nile are most active in the evening.

"The two positive bird specimens mean that residents of Bayfield County need to be more attentive in their personal protective measures to prevent mosquito bites", said Sara Wartman, Health Officer for Bayfield County.

Eighty percent of people who are infected with West Nile virus do not get sick.

That's because standing water is a breeding ground for mosquitoes.

While most people infected with the virus show no symptoms, some may have high fever, severe headache, tiredness and/or a stiff neck that can last several days to several weeks.

"To educate neighborhoods about West Nile virus, the Department has enhanced outreach to at-risk communities - particularly in senior centers and other venues - in Staten Island and Brooklyn", the agency reported.

There have been four human cases of the virus reported from Kings, Kern, San Bernardino and Los Angeles counties. Since 1999, the number of human cases has ranged from three to 47 annually.

"West Nile virus infection can cause a mild or moderate flu-like illness, or sometimes no symptoms at all".

According to RQHR, mosquitoes from one of the monitoring stations in the City of Regina tested positive for the virus during the first week of August.

The bird, a Stellar's Jay, was found on July 31.
