Mosquito Trap Tests Positive for West Nile Virus; Southwest WilCo Regional Park Adjusts Hours

A sampling of mosquitoes taken at a trap near the Southwest Williamson County Regional Park tested positive for West Nile Virus. This is the second time this trap has had mosquitoes test positive for West Nile Virus in the past three weeks. The Williamson County and Cities Health District (WCCHD) set up two expanded trap sites near the park, and both of the expanded traps came up with negative test results at this time. No other samples were found to be positive from routine trapping this week as part of the WCCHD Integrated Vector Management program. Williamson County will adjust hours for park visitors at the Southwest Williamson County Regional Park to prevent exposure to mosquitoes when they are most active. Starting July 28, the park will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
