Richland County officials are reminding residents to stay vigilant after the discovery of a second dead bird carrying West Nile virus in Richland County.

"While Utah County does not now have any confirmed human cases of West Nile Virus, this is a great reminder to residents of the importance of taking steps to protect themselves from mosquitoes", says Eric Edwards, MCHES, MPA, Deputy Director of the Utah County Health Department.

For more information about the West Nile virus, including a list of symptoms, visit the Jackson County West Nile virus fact sheet. However, only a very few species are expected to be important in West Nile virus transmission. Make sure your doors and windows have tight-fitting screens.

Riverside has worked to clean up overgrown vegetation and drain standing water in the area, but recent rains may have boosted mosquito breeding, City Councilman Mike Soubirous said.

Mosquitoes are repelled by high winds, so electric fans may provide some relief at outdoor events. The most prominent include the northern house mosquito, Culex pipiens, and Culex tarsalis.

Dress appropriately when outdoors - Wear shoes, socks, and long trousers and long-sleeved shirts that are loose fitting and light colored.

This is the first person to be reported to be infected this season and the first indication of West Nile virus activity in Kootenai County this season, bringing the total positive number of counties this year to 12. According to the CDC, about 1 in 5 people infected will develop a fever with a headache, body ache, joint pain, vomiting, diarrhea or a rash. People older than 50 and individuals with weakened immune systems are at higher risk for severe illness from West Nile virus. You might not see them, but their mission is to put the bite on you - particularly between dusk and dawn. There is no West Nile virus vaccine now available.
