08 August 2018

West Nile Virus has made its second appearance in Lambton County this summer, says Lambton Public Health.

Mosquitos are collected from over 90 test sites across CT to test for viruses including West Nile, Zika and Eastern Equine Encephalitis. No other details were released for privacy reasons.

The first appearance of West Nile was in late-July, with a crow in Sarnia testing positive for the virus.

Last year, 26 people contracted the virus and two died in Dallas County. Symptoms include: fever, headache and muscle aches.

Wear long, loose and light-colored clothing.

The product used will be a mosquito pesticide called Zenivex E20, which kills adult mosquitoes, but is not harmful to people and pets.
