Mosquito Pool in Penniman area of York County Tests Positive for West Nile
Submitted by York County Mosquito Control

MPPP ImageYork County Mosquito Control Division routinely samples mosquitoes collected throughout the County and tests for common mosquito-borne illnesses. Mosquito Control also conducts a comprehensive spray program during the season that mosquitoes are most active, from late spring to early fall. One mosquito pool recently collected in Upper York County (Penniman area) has tested positive for West Nile Virus.

At this time, there are no reported cases of West Nile Virus in humans or animals in York County that the County is aware of. The County plans to continue testing and spraying efforts. Mosquito Control recommends the use of insect repellent and long sleeves/pants to cover exposed skin.

For more information about West Nile Virus, please visit the Virginia Dept. of Health website. If there are concerns about symptoms in someone who has recently experienced a mosquito bite, please contact a medical provider.
