A bird has tested positive for West Nile virus in Fayette County. Fayette County Health Department Director of Environmental Health Jodi Smith says the positive bird joins two batches of mosquitoes that tested positive for West Nile as well earlier this summer. With the new positive test, Smith reminds that if you see a sick or dying bird, contact the health department to determine if that bird needs to be picked up for testing. People should also take caution when outdoors and should wear long sleeves, long pants, shoes and socks when outside and apply insect repellent that contains DEET. People should also avoid being outside from dusk to dawn and make sure that your windows and doors have tight-fitting screens. Areas of standing water such as in bird baths, ornamental ponds, wading pools, old tires and flowerpots should be eliminated as standing water can support mosquito breeding.
