As of Wednesday, there have been no cases of humans testing positive for West Nile virus in CT this season.

The 44-year-old from Clermont County is recovering and didn't require hospitalization, according to the Ohio Department of Health.

A mosquito trap in Tillsonburg has tested positive for West Nile virus during routine surveillance activities by Oxford County Public Health.

Mosquitoes infected with the West Nile virus have been found in the Kingston area for the first time since 2013.

"We grind them up into a solution, and, at that point, run a test with this machine to see whether or not they test positive for West Nile Virus", says Birris.

West Nile and EEE are transmitted via mosquito bite. West Nile symptoms can include fever, headache, body aches, nausea, vomiting and sometimes swollen lymph glands or a skin rash on the chest, stomach and back. People have to use anti-mosquitoes sprays and other similar products especially if they are around the following areas: Laguna Boulevard and Twin Cities Road. The last reported human case in the area was in 2013.

The disease is spread by mosquito bites. In rare cases, a person can be become ill through a blood transfusion.

St. Louis encephalitis was a virus historically controlled by mosquito abatement districts in California before West Nile virus came on the scene about 15 years ago. There are no medications to treat or vaccines to prevent West Nile virus infection.

Drain standing water in your yard and neighborhood: Mosquitoes can develop in any water stagnant for more than three days.

Make sure your doors and window screens fit tightly and are free of holes. Health officials urge people to take steps to avoid being bitten by using repellent, long sleeves, and avoid being out at dawn and dusk when the insects are most active.
