Two more mosquito batches in Stephenson County have tested positive for the West Nile virus.
The health department reported the findings today. One of the tests was repeat positive in the Read Park area of Freeport. The other was the first positive in the Dakota area. No humans have tested positive this year for the mosquito born illness. To protect ourselves, experts say wear bug spray and try to stay indoors around dawn and dusk.
