A key way of preventing mosquito bites and the chance of West Nile Virus that can come with them is to wear mosquito repellant when you go outside, according to Krista Jenkins, director of Douglas County Mosquito Abatement.

Looks like the West Nile Virus is still a thing in Toronto after a case was confirmed in a news release by the City of Toronto on Tuesday.

"We encourage everyone to take the appropriate precautions to minimize the risk of exposure to West Nile virus through the bite of an infected mosquito".

There were no other reported cases this year, while last year there were 39 human cases in Toronto. People who are impacted most often develop mild symptoms including fevers and body aches, though the virus can occasionally cause severe disease or even death.

In the latest of their weekly reports on the subject, KDHE upgraded every region of the state to high risk level for the virus.

Take extra care by using repellent and covering up during peak mosquito-biting hours when mosquitoes bite, which is dusk and dawn.

Remove standing water from your property, where mosquitoes can breed.
