Mild illness may include headache, body aches, joint pain, vomiting diarrhea, or rash.

On a personal level, Gallant said that residents should take measures such as wearing long-sleeved clothing and applying insect repellent with DEET or oil of lemon eucalyptus, among other types.

West Nile encephalitis is more serious, and may have additional symptoms, including neck stiffness, stupor, disorientation, coma, tremors, convulsions, muscle weakness and paralysis.

Remove water standing for more than 3 days from bird baths, pet dishes, flower pots, outdoor stored automotive tires or neglected swimming pools.

Wear long sleeves and trousers during dusk and dawn.

Maintain window and door screening to help keep mosquitoes outside. People 50 years of age or older have the greatest risk of complications.

West Nile Virus can not be transmitted from person to person.
