West Nile Found In Marion County

Mosquitoes carrying the West Nile virus have been found in Marion County. BUT so far no human cases have been reported in the county this year, nor were their deaths from West Nile all of last year. Health officals say most people who become infected with West Nile virus don't develop any symptoms. The Marion County Public Health Department reminds everyone to stay protected from bites, and dump standing water in containers of any size and flush out bird baths every week.
