More information about WNV, mosquitoes in Boulder County and preventive measures can be found on the county's website, as well as the websites of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and the CSU Extension.

Maryland's Department of Agriculture said it found the virus in mosquitoes collected in the Riverdale Park area of Prince George's County.

Pennsylvania officials are warning people to minimize their exposure to mosquitoes as testing is underway to confirm the suspected first case of human West Nile virus infection in the state this year.

"We advise everyone to take the appropriate precautions no matter what ZIP Code you live in", she said, in a statement.

West Nile is transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito.

About one in 150 will develop serious and potentially life-threatening conditions that include encephalitis, which is inflammation of the brain, or meningitis.

The most vulnerable to the virus are people age 50 and older and those who have weakened immune systems because of diseases such as diabetes and cancer. Long trousers and sleeves are also an important way to cut down on possible exposure to mosquitoes. Other repellents containing picaridin, IR3535, oil of lemon eucalyptus or para-menthane-diol are also effective against mosquitoes. Do not spray repellent on the skin under your clothing.

It comes one day after bug expert Taz Stuart told Global News that August long weekend is traditionally the riskiest time of year to be infected by the disease.

Carroll said West Nile is elevated in the Lehigh Valley this year, but no records have been broken. Seventeen people died due to the Nipah virus in Kerala, out of which 16 cases were confirmed in lab.
