The cold weather is moving in, you probably saw some frost on your car. So, did the frost rid us of the West Nile virus?

Winnebago County Health Department officials say not quite. So, it is still important to take precautions while outdoors. But, this season's end of the mosquito borne virus is near.

The Winnebago County Health Department says the mosquito borne virus could be back next year. That is if birds continue to harbor the virus.
