West Nile Virus Confirmed in New Berlin and City of Waukesha

The Waukesha County Environmental Health Division has been notified of the first confirmed cases of the West Nile Virus in birds found in the County this year.

Three crows in the City of Waukesha and one crow in New Berlin tested positive for the virus as part of the mosquito and WNV surveillance, prevention and control program.

“Even though the West Nile Virus is appearing late in the season, residents should continue to protect themselves from mosquitoes,” said Waukesha County Public Health Officer Ben Jones. “Summer may nearly be over, but mosquito season can last until the first frost or later.”
