  • State health officials have detected cases of West Nile virus in three Montana counties

The health department places "sentinel chicken flocks" in places around Florida -including Palm Beach County from Delray Beach to Jupiter and from West Palm Beach to Belle Glade and Pahokee, WPTV reported.

According to the Division, "Vector Control will continue monitoring activities throughout the county, and is increasing surveillance and control in the area of Greenville Loop Road".

Medical providers should report all cases of West Nile virus to the City's Department of Health. Health officials will continue to collect and test mosquito batches throughout the rest of the season (mid-October) and will accept a limited number of dead birds for testing.

Two residents have been diagnosed with West Nile virus in West Cambridge and North Cambridge, the city's Public Health Department reported Thursday, though the risk of infection statewide is deemed to be low.

When you are outdoors, use insect repellent containing an EPA-registered active ingredient, such as DEET or Picaridin (Follow manufacturers' instructions on the label.)

If you must be outside at dawn or dusk, wear long sleeves, pants, and loose-fitting clothing. Residents can reduce the mosquito population by draining or eliminating containers that hold water, health officials say.
