First case of West Nile Virus in DuPage County in 2019 appears

It may seem late in the season to be getting mosquito bites, but trust me they’re still out there and closer than you think!   Even worse, these blood-suckers may be carrying the deadly West Nile Virus.  2019’s first case of West Nile just happened to a Lombard resident.  The DuPage County Health Department has announced that the woman in her 40’s that was bit is the 4th to contract the West Nile Virus in Illinois this year.

Reminder: eliminate any still water you may have on your property, use bug repellent when outdoors can consider long clothing to cover up exposed skin.
