West Nile Virus warning

2012 is turning out to be a difficult year for West Nile Virus (WNV).  Be sure to eliminate standing water and breeding grounds for mosquitos who can carry WNV.  Wear insect repellant if you are going to be outdoors, especially in the evenings.  People over 50 are more likely to have serious disease. Less than 1% will have serious neurological complications. 20%  will have a flu like symptoms or rash. 80% may have no symptoms at all. For more information check out the FAQs at the CDC http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvbid/westnile/wnv_factSheet.htm.
