Unfortunately, there are no medications or vaccines to treat West Nile, but people who have had the virus before are considered immune.

The most serious cases of West Nile can be deadly. If people who become infected do suffer symptoms, they are typically mild, including headache, fever, nausea, fatigue, skin rash or swollen glands. Mosquitoes get the virus by feeding on infected birds, and are then able to pass it on to other birds and mammals when they bite.

The agency encourages residents and visitors to take precautions to prevent mosquito-borne. Other advice includes repairing tears in screens and wearing long-sleeved clothing.

Usually, mosquitos are more active at dusk or dawn.

The Center for Disease Control recommends people use screens on windows/doors, use air conditioning when available and at least once a week empty, scrub, turn over, cover, or throw out items that hold water. DHS will continue surveillance for West Nile virus until the end of the mosquito season.
