More West Nile Virus in Onondaga County
 
 
Onondaga County Health Commissioner, Dr. Cynthia B. Morrow announced that late yesterday the New York State Department of Health’s laboratory reported additional evidence of West Nile virus in two mosquito pools collected on October 5 and October 7, 2011 from the Route 298 trap located in the Town of Cicero. 
 
As a reminder, until Onondaga County has a hard frost throughout the area, it is important for the public  to continue to take measures to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes and to also keep yards free from standing water to reduce the mosquito population.  For more information about personal protection measures contact the Onondaga County Health Department, Division of Environmental Health at 435-1649or visit: http:/ongov.net/health/mosquitoborne.html
