The current risk for contracting the virus in Yorkton is moderate, and West Nile infected mosquitoes have been found in the province.

Health officials say late summer and early fall is the peak time for West Nile Virus. In rare cases, people develop severe illnesses like meningitis, which can be deadly. There are no vaccines or medications to treat West Nile. KDHE officials said those who are concerned about symptoms should talk to their doctors.

"While we continue our mosquito surveillance and control efforts in the region, we want to remind people across London and Middlesex County that they need to protect themselves and their families from mosquito bites", vector-borne disease coordinator Jeremy Hogeveen said in a statement.

The season's first two batches of mosquitoes carrying West Nile virus in Westchester County have been identified in Yonkers.

Mosquitoes in more than a dozen cities and towns across the state have tested positive for West Nile.

At about 1:30 in the morning there were multiple 911 calls about a disturbance near North Iola Street and East Montview Boulevard. One call was very specific and dire: A woman said an intruder was breaking into her home in the middle of the night.


Many mosquitoes are most active at dusk and dawn.

People are also encouraged to ensure that doors and windows are sealed and screens are well maintained to ensure mosquitoes don't enter the home.

Empty water from mosquito breeding sites like buckets, unused kiddie pools or places where water collects. Drill holes in tire swings so water drains out.

Health Director Dennis Johnson said no mosquito has tested positive in town this year and only one tested positive last year.

Symptoms include fever, headache, weakness, muscle pain, arthritis-like pain, gastrointestinal symptoms and rash. Birds, horses and humans can get infected through a single bite.
