"We are still in a peak period of West Nile virus transmission in the state so we urge everyone to take every possible precaution to protect themselves against mosquito bites", said CDPH Director and State Health Officer Dr. Karen Smith in a press release.

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) confirmed two deaths in California due to West Nile virus in Glenn County and Yuba County.

Most people with West Nile virus may not know they have been infected. Half of North Dakota counties have confirmed a human case.

"The rain Denton County has received [last] week cannot be attributed to these recent cases, but standing water left from rain last month could have left breeding grounds for these mosquitoes", Rainey said.

D - DEET - use DEET, picardin, oil of lemon eucalyptus or IR3535.

Wearing long sleeves, long trousers, and socks when outdoors to help keep mosquitos away from your skin can help, according to a statement from the department. If an animal is diagnosed with West Nile virus or EEE, owners are required to report to the Division of Animal Health by calling 617-626-1795 and to the DPH by calling 617-983-6800.

"Unfortunately you can still get west Nile". Repellents keep the mosquitoes from biting you.

Dusk & Dawn: Limit outdoor activities during dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active.

Eliminate all sources of standing water on your property, including flowerpots, gutters, buckets, pool covers, birdbaths, old auto tires, rain gutters and pet bowls.

More information, including all WNV and EEE positive results, can be found on the Arbovirus Surveillance Information web page at www.mass.gov/dph/mosquito or by calling the DPH Epidemiology Program at 617-983-6800.
