I really got the feeling he had more experience with West Nile, and had more to say.

Infected mosquitoes spread the West Nile when they bite humans, horses and birds.

The West Nile virus has not surfaced in Sanpete County this year, according to Kristina Winkel, a public health nurse with the CUPHD.

"We know many people will be outside for this event, and we want to remind the public that personal protection against mosquitoes is critical in the prevention of West Nile virus", said District Manager Gary Goodman.

According to the CDC, almost 60,000 cases of tickborne diseases, including Lyme disease, were reported by state health departments previous year.

Mosquitoes in 32 Clark County ZIP codes have tested positive for the virus, the Health District said.

Sherman says his read on the Solstice report is while it delves into all the conditions and decisions which could have led to the disease outbreak in the community and contributed to the birds' deaths, it says next to nothing about how those conditions and management decisions unacceptably heightened the risk of West Nile infection for the Town's human citizens. Luz Robles, the district's public information officer, said that mosquitoes complete their life cycles faster in warm temperatures, going from larvae to adult mosquitoes in as little as four to seven days. Eliminate, or refresh each week, all sources of standing water where mosquitoes can breed, including water in bird baths, ponds, flowerpots, pet bowls, clogged rain gutters, wading pools, old tires and any other containers.

Be sure door and window screens are tight-fitting and in good fix.

Parish officials warn residents that even though 2019 has been "light" in terms on WNV, they should still take precautions to wear mosquito repellent and/or long-sleeved clothing when outdoors, as well as avoiding outdoor activity during peak mosquito activity (morning and evening).
