West Nile Virus is a mosquito-borne disease that produces no symptoms in most people who contract it.

The department found mosquito pools positive for the West Nile Virus in the following zip codes: 38002, 38016, 38053, 38104, 38106, 38108, 38109, 38111, 38112, 38114, 38115, 38116, 38117, 38118, 38119, 38122, 38127, 38128, 38133 and 38135.

South Bend resident Melissa Woods said she's not very concerned but she still takes the necessary precautions to remain safe.

Yolo County is finally seeing the first signs of West Nile virus activity this year in two mosquito samples, one from Winters and the other from Zamora, the Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito & Vector Control District announced Wednesday.

The virus is expected to become widespread in the county this fall.

Symptoms of both West Nile and St. Louis Encephalitis are similar, the health department said in a news release, and it is possible the four patients actually have St. Louis Encephalitis. The illness can cause overwhelming fatigue, bad muscle aches and headaches, according to doctors, and people who survive severe cases of the illness report ongoing problems with fatigue and neurological problems. People over age 50 and those with diabetes or hypertension are more likely to develop the most serious symptoms.

Empty and refill pets' water bowls at least every few days.

To prevent yourself from being infected, Interior Health spokesperson Leah Feist suggests residents should try to avoid outdoor activities during the hours around dawn and dusk, when the mosquitos are most active.

Longmont's mosquito control contractor, Vector Disease Control International (VCDI), will perform adulticide fogging, weather permitting, in 11 of the 12 Longmont zones Thursday night, August 8, 2019. Experts say the increase, while small, underscores the need to protect against mosquitoes during the hot summer months.

The Yellow Fever Mosquito, or Aedes aegypti, has been found in Tulare County and was first discovered in Madera and Clovis in 2013.

The risk of becoming seriously ill from West Nile virus infection is low for most people.
