While no human or animal infections have been detected, officials are warning residents to use precautions, including the use of insect repellant, wearing long-sleeved shirts and long trousers to keep mosquitoes from biting.

Mosquitoes that were collected in the Riverview, North Street and Dumville Lane areas of Suffolk tested positive for WNV, while mosquitoes collected in Cove Point and the Lamb Avenue tested positive for EEE.

West Nile virus has been reported in mosquito populations around MI and the Upper Peninsula since 2001, and the rest of the continental United States since 1999, according to CDC statistics.

Residents are reminded to protect themselves from mosquito bites and mosquito-borne diseases. Some predatory birds become infected after eating sick or dead birds that were already infected with the virus. "The virus arrives in the U.P. annually". About 80 percent of people who are infected will not show any symptoms.

Transmission of West Nile virus can be avoided by preventing mosquito bites, the only know route of transmission.

According to the City of Suffolk, horses in the city are commonly found with EEE. Up to 20 percent of people will have mild symptoms that include flu-like symptoms, swollen glands, or a skin rash on the stomach, back, and neck.

"One-in-10 out of that 1-in-150 could become fatally ill", she stated.

Last year, 30 towns in 6 counties had mosquitoes that tested positive for West Nile. West Nile Virus can lead to a potentially deadly form of encephalitis. Increased mosquito surveillance, treatment of standing water and evening spray applications for adult mosquitoes are also being administered.
