Alert

Burr Ridge/DuPage County Increase in West Nile virus Activity Prompts Advisory.

The Village of Burr Ridge was notified by the DuPage County Health Department that one of their traps located at 15 W. 400 Harvester Drive, Burr Ridge, tested positive for West Nile Virus.

We are urging all citizens to take precautions to prevent exposure to WNV. The DuPage County Health Department operates a countywide WNV surveillance program, and recent positive reports from mosquitoes trapped in the county are in line with similar reports of WNV activity elsewhere in northeastern Illinois.

It is recommended that individuals spray themselves with insect repellant containing Deet when outdoors; wear long sleeves and pants when possible; stay indoors at dusk and at dawn when mosquitoes are most active; and drain containers such as tires or flower pots which may collect and hold water where mosquitoes can breed.

More information and tips to control mosquitoes can be found on the DuPage County Health Department Website and the Village of Burr Ridge Website:

Instructions:

See the attached flyer for tips on personal protection from the West Nile Virus.
