The good news is there has been no sign of West Nile Virus in Hastings and Prince Edward counties so far this summer.
Senior public health inspector with Hastings Prince Edward Health Unit, Andrew Landy, says his department has had traps in 15 locations throughout the two counties.
Landy says none of the mosquitoes trapped so far have tested positive for West Nile Virus.
Meanwhile, the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge Health Unit that serves Northumberland County reports that a batch of mosquitoes collected in Haliburton have tested positive for the virus.
Officials are reminding people to cover up when outside between dusk and dawn and apply insect repellent to exposed skin.
