The Berkshire County Mosquito Control Project has found one positive sample of West Nile virus near Swamp Road in Richmond.

The presence of similar mosquitoes was confirmed for the first time in mid-June by officials in Long Beach.

A mosquito pool has tested positive for the virus, according to the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit. But the Department of Public Health says no human or animal cases of WNV or another high-risk mosquito-borne disease, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, have been found in humans or animals so far this year. To minimize the risks, the Illinois Department of Public Health recommends the practices of "Reduce, Repel and Report". Fix or replace screens that have tears or other openings.

Repel mosquitoes when outdoors by wearing shoes and socks, long trousers and a long-sleeved shirt.
