Dead crow tests positive for West Nile in Dunn County

(WEAU) - The Dunn County Health Department says a dead crow that was found in the county on July 11th has tested positive for West Nile virus.

It says the virus is spread to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito. Mosquitoes acquire the virus by feeding on infected birds.

The health department says people in Dunn County should protect themselves from mosquito bites by doing things like applying insect repellant to clothing and exposed skin and limit time spent outside at dawn and dusk.
