Steps to reduce your risk of West Nile Virus include wearing long-sleeves, long trousers, using mosquito repellant, avoiding being outside during dawn and dusk, using screens on windows or doors, emptying sitting water and cleaning and chlorinating swimming pools.

The CDC says West Nile virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis virus are transmitted through the bite of an infected mosquito.

The press release cites the four D's as the best way to prevent mosquito bites, and the various illnesses they can spread.

There have also been 22 human cases of West Nile confirmed to date for 2018 with two residents contracting the virus in the Will and DuPage County portions of Aurora.
