Mosquito carrying West Nile detected in Boone County

Boone County — The Indiana State Health Department announced Wednesday that at least one mosquito from a sample collected in Boone County has tested positive for the West Nile Virus.

West Nile virus is commonly found throughout the state each summer, including Boone County, says Cindy Murphy, Boone County Health Department administrator.

“Typically, we see it and expect to see West Nile activity every year, but it’s always good to get confirmation that it is here so we can alert residents and remind them to take precaution,” she said. “It could be anywhere, which is the message we want to give. We don’t want anyone to feel like it’s not in their area and not take necessary precautions.”
