West Nile Case Virus in Winnebago County

The Health Department says a dead crow infected with the Mosquito-borne illness has been discovered. Wednesday's Winnebago County case is the fifth bird in Illinois to test positive for the virus. The warmer weather and recent rain means we can expect more mosquitos soon.
The Health Department is looking for our help to track infected birds. If you see a dead crow or blue jay, call the Health Department at 720-4245. If you would like more information on the West Nile Virus, you can call 720-4240.
