Boulder County Public Health recently confirmed that mosquitoes in Erie, Louisville and Longmont, Colorado, have tested positive for West Nile virus (WNV), providing a reminder for the campus community to take precautions when outdoors this time of year. Mosquitoes become infected when they feed on infected birds. A very small proportion of human infections have occurred through organ transplant, blood transfusions and breast milk.

Symptoms of the viral disease vary from person to person, the CDC noted. This area appears to be the center of elevated numbers of potentially disease-carrying mosquitoes.

Symptoms of West Nile Virus include fever, headache, body aches, nausea, vomiting, swollen lymph glands, a rash on the chest, stomach or back, and a fever. Eight out of 10 people will never experience any symptoms. There were no reported cases of West Nile in the county past year.

Between 2013 and 2015, there were no reported human cases with only single cases reported in 2016 and 2017. Of those, 23 cases involved meningitis or encephalitis.

To reduce the number of mosquitoes in your yard, be sure to remove any standing water from items such as pots, hot tubs, pools, buckets or wheelbarrows.

Dr. Benjamin Schwartz, director of epidemiology and population health with the Fairfax County Health Department said people should use mosquito repellent that contains DEET, picaridin, R3535 or oil of lemon eucalyptus; wear long trousers and long sleeves, and avoid areas where mosquitoes are common, particularly during dawn and dusk. The use of mosquito nets can be useful at night, particularly for infants.
