[ARCHIVED] West Nile Virus Update as of 7/29/16


West Nile virus is transmitted to people and animals through the bite of an infected mosquito. Mosquitoes acquire WNV when they feed on infected birds, and then pass the virus along when they bite humans. In areas where West Nile virus has been detected, OCMVCD staff are deployed to canvass the area to look for mosquito breeding sources, expand public education, and work with city officials to correct infrastructure issues.
