Clinton County's health department recently confirmed that West Nile virus was detected in mosquitoes in that county.

Most people get infected with West Nile virus by the bite of an infected mosquito.

Most people who are infected with WNV will not experience any illness.

On Monday, the county notified the town that a Glenwick Estates resident was diagnosed with West Nile Fever, the news release said.

Less than one percent of those infected develop severe neurological illness like encephalitis or meningitis. "The more time someone is outdoors, the more time the person is at risk of being bitten by an infected mosquito; that is why we encourage everyone to take all precautions against mosquito bites". "It's not a huge percentage of people but who wants to be that one person", said Hausbeck.

"This is an important reminder to stay vigilant and protect against mosquito bites throughout the summer and into the fall", said Dr. Eden Wells, Chief Medical Executive at the MDHHS.

Use an approved insect repellent and follow the manufacturer's instructions.




Cover exposed skin by wearing a hat, long sleeves and long trousers in places where mosquitoes are especially active, such as wooded areas. DEET can be used safely on infants and children two months of age and older.

According to the Central Massachusetts Mosquito Control Project, while evening temperatures have begun to decline across the state, residents should continue to avoid mosquito bites regardless of where they live until the first hard frost.

Keep them outside by having tightly-fitting screens on all of your windows and doors. Always fix broken screens.

Wear shoes, socks, long trousers and long sleeves when mosquitoes are most prevalent.

Clean and chlorinate swimming pools, and when pools are covered do not let standing water accumulate.

Dispose of water-holding containers, such as ceramic pots, used tires, and tire swings. Neglected swimming pools are also prime places for mosquito breeding.
