Culex tarsalis is the mosquito that carries the west Nile virus. Mosquitoes may bite through thin clothing, so spraying clothes with repellent containing permethrin or another EPA-registered repellent will give extra protection.

"With exposure to mosquitoes comes risk of West Nile virus", said Dr. Jason Cabaj, Medical Officer of Health, Calgary Zone.

This is the first positive indicator of West Nile Virus in the county for 2018.

The case is in Hinds County. Mosquitoes can then transmit it to other birds or to humans or horses. Only about one in every 150 people who contract West Nile will end up with a case this severe. West Nile Virus is active throughout the State of California.

"Weather permitting, the Health District's Residential Services Unit will fog in the area north to Condit Road, south to Hartford Road, west to Centerburg Road, and east to Meredith Road", a DGHD press release states.
