Mosquitoes carrying the West Nile virus have been identified in the Kingston area for the first time since 2013. KFL&A Public Health says infected mosquitoes have been discovered in Kingston and Napanee. No human cases have been reported so far this year but we have to protect ourselves!
Tips to protect yourself:
*Avoid mosquito bites by wearing protective clothing and using insect repellent.
*Stay indoors or be extra cautious at dusk and dawn because that is when mosquitoes are most active.
*Rid your property of stagnant water.
