West Nile Cases Popping Up Across the State

UNDATED — There have been seven human cases of West Nile Virus confirmed in Minnesota so far this summer, one of which is right here in Stearns County.

Dave Neitzel is the State Epidemiologist. He says we’re in the prime season for the disease right now and it will continue until the weather gets cooler.

Neitzel says it’s good to know when you are at the highest risk…like at dawn and dusk.

You should also use a mosquito repellant with DEET to help keep the pests at bay.

If you experience symptoms like a headache, high fever, rash and vomiting, call your doctor.
