West Nile Virus

By  | 

Health officials announced today two dead crows tested postive for West Nile Virus. The crows came from Brookfield and Hamlin Townships.

Although it is early in the season to be finding positive cases of the virus, health officials say this may just be attributed to more public awareness and more reporting of dead birds.

Eric Pessell, Environmental Health Director of Barry-Eaton District Health Department, says it's too early to tell if this is an indication of a bad West Nile Virus season. He urges people to continue to be diligent in reporting dead birds and to take preventative measures.
