11 August, 2018, 11:42
The department has not confirmed any cases of the virus in humans within Tuscarawas County.
To report suspected cases of human WNV, call the DPH Office of Infectious Disease Epidemiology at 888-295-5156.
Mosquitoes from two traps tested positive for the virus Tuesday. In 2017, Ada County's first positive West Nile test pool was reported in mid-July.
West Nile virus was first detected in the United States in New York City in 1999 and quickly spread across the country within a few years.

She continued, "Vaccination is typically administered in the spring, but may offer some protection even this late in the season". If owners notice any of these signs in their horses, they should contact their veterinarian immediately.
The Pennsylvania Department of Health has issued an advisory through the Health Advisory Network to alert medical professionals about the risk of West Nile virus.
In the meantime, topical insecticides and eliminating standing water may help decrease your horse's exposure to mosquitoes.
Limit outdoor activities during dusk and dawn to prevent mosquito bites.
The best defense against WNV is bite prevention. Health officials recommend using bug repellents containing "deet".
Remove standing water from your property as that is often where mosquito breeding grounds are found. Drain such areas around your home (gutters, pools, tires, buckets, water bowls, etc.). Wear long-sleeved shirts, long trousers and use repellant with deet.
The severity and symptoms of WNV can vary widely.
Death from infection with West Nile virus is 10 percent for those diagnosed with severe illness, but is much higher for patients diagnosed with West Nile virus encephalitis and acute flaccid paralysis. Individuals who develop any of these symptoms should see their healthcare provider immediately.
