WCCHD Reports Second Human Case of West Nile Virus This Year

The Williamson County and Cities Health District (WCCHD) reported its second human case of West Nile Virus (WNV) neuroinvasive disease in Williamson County for 2020. The person is in their 70s and resides in central Williamson County. This season, 13 mosquito trap samples have tested positive for West Nile virus in Williamson County so far. Active positive traps have been reported in the Southwest Williamson County Regional Park/New Hope Drive area in Leander, Sun City in Georgetown, near the Brushy Creek Community Center in Round Rock, and in Granger. As part of its Fight the Bite campaign the Health District recommends the 3 Ds of mosquito safety:
• Drain standing water in flower pots, pet dishes, or clogged gutters so mosquitoes don’t have a place to breed and treat water that can’t be drained,
• Defend by using an EPA-approved insect repellent, and
• Dress in long sleeves and pants when outdoors.

Mosquitoes Test Positive for West Nile Virus Near Southwest Williamson County Regional Park

A sampling of mosquitoes taken at a trap near the Southwest Williamson County Regional Park, 3005 CR 175 in Leander, has tested positive for West Nile virus. This is the third time this trap, located at New Hope and CR 175, has had mosquitoes test positive for West Nile virus this year. The Williamson County and Cities Health District (WCCHD) will set up two additional trap sites near the park to expand testing in the area. The mosquito species that transmits West Nile virus is most active at dawn and dusk, residents are advised to be most cautious at those times by following the 3Ds of mosquito safety:
•    Drain standing water in flower pots, pet dishes or clogged gutters so mosquitoes don’t have a place to breed and treat water that can’t be drained,
•    Defend by using an EPA-approved insect repellent, and
•    Dress in long sleeves and pants when outdoors.
