Mosquito Tests Positive For West Nile Virus

  For the third summer in a row a mosquito in Longview has tested positive for the West Nile virus. The mosquito was part of a group that was collected in the southern part of the city on July 13th.

  The environmental health department says the chances of a healthy individual developing the virus is still extremely small. However, they say you should take extra precautions.  They say stay indoors during dusk and dawn hours and use effective mosquito repellant.
