Huron Health Reports West Nile Close By

The Huron County Health Unit reports mosquitoes infected with the West Nile virus are in neighbouring counties.

Mosquitoes have tested positive for the virus in both Lambton County and London-Middlesex.

So far no positive results for West Nile have turned up in Huron.

However, health officials are advising residents to take precautions, such as wearing long sleeved tops, and long pants in a light colour. Health officials also advise minimizing time spent outdoors at dusk and dawn and to wear insect repellent.

Mosquitoes will continue to be a threat until a significant frost event.
