First 2019 case of West Nile in Chicago confirmed

The Illinois Department of Public Health warns that West Nile is here and we must beware!  A case was identified here in Chicago for the first time in 2019.  Last year, 74 counties in Illinois reported West Nile virus positive mosquitos.  It is suggested that you eliminate stagnant water around your home and use insect repellent to avoid being bitten and risking contraction of the deadly virus.
