  • Officials say two pools of mosquitoes have tested positive for the virus

When there is one case that has recently occurred in a county but the risk is not confined to that area, like a mosquito-borne disease, we report by region so individuals in a potential risk area are informed and the chance that the person's identity could be discovered is reduced. In addition, in Vernon there is a trap to detect the Aedes albopictus mosquito, which can carry the Zika virus.

Symptoms can include: fever, headache, body aches, nausea, vomiting, swollen lymph glands and a rash on the chest, stomach or back.

-Clean and chlorinate swimming pools, outdoor saunas, and hot tubs; drain water from pool covers.

"I know it might be uncomfortable, considering the heat", said Natalie Kwit, State Public Health Veterinarian with the Vermont Department of Health, "but you should wear long sleeves and long trousers when outside". Empty containers and change water weekly in containers that can not be removed, such as bird baths, pet dishes and wading pools.

Mosquitoes are most active at dusk and during the early-morning hours.

Kwit said healthy people might have come in contact with the West Nile Virus and might not even know it.

Eighty percent of people infected with the virus have no symptoms, while 20 percent report a flu-like state. "DEET-containing insect repellents are a really good idea if you're going to be ... outside at all". Mosquitoes can become infected when they feed on the blood from infected birds.

The best way to avoid exposure to West Nile virus is to avoid mosquito bites.

As of Wednesday, North Dakota reported 18 human WNV cases, up 14 cases since July 30.

The Dauphin County Conservation District has collected more West Nile virus-infected mosquito samples, bringing the total to 62 this year.

The county's WNV Control Program is continuing to closely monitor conditions and implement control measures to reduce the mosquito population and prevent the virus from spreading, Dauphin County commissioners said last week. Consult with a pediatrician or family physician if you have questions about the use of repellent on children, as repellent is not recommended for children younger than 2 months.
