Two-hundred and forty-one cases of the West Nile Virus have been reported this year across the county.
This is the highest number of cases at this point of the year since 2004. The amount of mosquitoes is high this year because of a mild winter.
The Centers for Disease Control says the number of West Nile Cases typically peaks around mid-August.
To prevent mosquito bites use and reapply repellents frequently, limit time outdoors during the dusk and dawn, and drain areas where there is standing water.
