Tarrant County Public Health (TCPH) has confirmed a West Nile Virus (WNV) positive mosquito sample, the first of the 2016 season. No human cases have been reported in 2016. The positive mosquito sample was collected from the City of Arlington.

“This is an unusually early positive sample,” said TCPH Associate Director Anita Kurian. “Typically, the first positive occurs in June.”

To date, 637 mosquito samples have been tested at TCPH’s North Texas Regional Laboratory since seasonal surveillance began on April 1.

TCPH would like to remind residents of the importance of taking personal protective measures to safeguard against West Nile Virus. Residents should routinely dump standing water on their property, use repellent and dress for dusk to dawn.

For water that cannot be drained, stop by Town Hall and pick up some mosquito dunks, free of charge.
