West Nile Continues to Spread

By  | 

The spread of the West Nile virus has state health department officials warning people over 50 or in poor health they probably shouldn't go outside at dawn or dusk.

At the very least, the health department says they should wear long-sleeve shirts and pants and wear insect repellent.

There is evidence the virus has spread to 40 of the state's 102 counties. It hasn't spread to humans yet but health department spokesman says a human case is inevitable.
