But, Hazelwood said it is common at this point in the summer season for WNV-positive mosquitoes. She advised that residents should take standard precautions to reduce exposure to the bugs.
"It is not necessary to cancel all outside activities," Hazelwood said in the letter. "When possible, limit outside activities, especially near wooded areas, one hour before dawn and one hour after it starts to get dark."
She also recommended the usual precautions: wear long sleeves and pants and put on bug spray. But, young children should not use any bug spray product directly on their skin that contains more than 15 percent of the pesticide DEET, Hazelwood said.
