6th Ward: Bird tests positive for West Nile virus

Evonda Thomas, Evanston Public Health Director, announced today the first bird testing positive for West Nile virus in Evanston this year.
 
“As temperatures start to warm up, we’re going to start seeing more mosquito activity and an increased risk for West Nile virus,” said Ms. Thomas. “Although most cases of West Nile virus are mild, the virus can still cause serious, life-altering and even fatal disease. That is why it is so important to protect yourself against mosquito bites by wearing insect repellent and getting rid of any standing water around your home.”
