If you are planning to be outside enjoying this summer weekend, be aware, mosquitoes carrying the West Nile Virus have been detected in Kent County.

Most people infected with the virus do not show symptoms, although more severe symptoms may occur, including fever, headaches, body aches, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, and sometimes swollen lymph glands or a skin rash. Less than one percent of those infected develop serious illness of the nervous system like encephalitis or meningitis.

"Public Health thanks the community for being diligent in removing standing water and eliminating the places where mosquitoes can breed", Callanan said. Change the water in bird baths at least once a week. Do not forget to drain water from tires, cans, flowerpots, clogged rain gutters, rain barrels, toys and puddles. Other repellents containing picaridin, IR3535, oil of lemon eucalyptus or para-menthane-diol are also effective against mosquitoes. Long sleeves and trousers if possible.
