Community Advisory – First West Nile Positive Mosquitoes in SCHR

The risk for West Nile virus is increasing in SCHR with the identification of WNv-positive mosquitoes in SCHR. Dr. Hudson says "The most important thing is to avoid all mosquito bites, but particularly at the times that the mosquitos carrying WNV are most active, which is at dusk. People should remember to use an insect repellent with DEET and wear protective light-coloured clothing at dusk particularly if they are spending a lot of time outdoors, in the back yard, at the farm or in a park. People should also remember that dusk is getting earlier at this time of year and that there is some risk now during the early evening hours or on cloudy afternoons when temperatures are warmer.
