Mosquito Tests Positive for West Nile Virus
Posted: Monday, August 28, 2017

A mosquito of the Culex salinarius species has tested positive for West Nile Virus in the southeast quadrant of the city of Lynn. This species bites birds and mammals. Other communities on the North Shore have also had positive West Nile Virus detected in human biting mosquitoes. The risk level of infection to humans has not increased as a result of this positive test and remains at the moderate risk level until the first frost of the autumn season.

The most effective way to reduce the chances of contracting a mosquito-borne illness is personal protection.

Residents are reminded and strongly urged to use repellent containing DEET and proper personal clothing protection when outdoors, especially during dawn and dusk. Standing water outdoors should be discarded to limit the places where mosquitoes could lay their eggs. Be sure to empty any unused flowerpots, wading pools, tarps that collect water and change water in birdbaths frequently.

Please visit for additional information on protecting yourself from mosquito bites. 

Short videos on preventing tick and mosquito-borne diseases are available for your use at:
