According to Ohio Department of Health (ODH), West Nile Virus (WNV) has been detected in a mosquito sample from Greene County.

Schiffman says people who do experience symptoms usually are feverish and may experience body aches or a rash. Less than 1% of people get seriously ill.

The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (DEM) announced Fridat that test results from two mosquito pools, or samples, from traps set in Tiverton and Pawtucket on July 30 have been confirmed positive for West Nile Virus (WNV). With WNV and EEE established throughout the state, DEM and RIDOH remind the public to eliminate mosquito breeding grounds and prevent being bitten, whenever possible.

August and September are traditionally the peak times for virus transmission of the mosquitoborne virus.

Make sure window and door screens are in good fix to prevent mosquito entry.

Clean roof gutters and downspouts for proper drainage. "Change out water in bird baths and pet watering bowls weekly and place screening on rain barrels". Additional prevention measures include wearing long-sleeved shirts and long trousers to avoid bites, and draining any items that hold water inside and outside of homes, such as birdbaths, pools, trash containers, and buckets.

Trim tall grass, weeds, and vines. "We are still in the middle of summer and the hot temperatures are contributing to high mosquito populations in both urban and agricultural areas".

Turn over objects that may trap water when not in use, such as wading pools and wheelbarrows.

DHS will continue surveillance for West Nile virus until the end of the mosquito season. Now that a positive result has been identified in the County, testing will be discontinued.
