West Nile Virus

(Division of Environmental Health)
 

West Nile virus (WNV) is a mosquito-borne virus that can cause a serious, life-altering disease that is potentially fatal. People get WNV through the bite of an infected mosquito.

The best protection against WNV is to avoid mosquito bites: use insect repellent, wear long sleeves and long pants, keep window and door screens in good repair, and dump out standing water around your home where mosquitoes can lay their eggs.
