According to Saskatchewan Health, the Estevan area remains the only area of the province so far this year to report a positive mosquito pool for the West Nile Virus.

Medical Health Officer Doctor Mark Vooght says the risk of contracting the virus is still low, but will increase as the summer progresses.

To protect yourself against the virus, avoid being outside at dusk and dawn when the mosquitoes are most active, wear light coloured clothing, use an insect repellent that contains DEET, and eliminate any standing water near your home and in your yard.

The mosquito monitoring traps will be checked on a weekly basis, with the results available on the Saskatchewan Health webpage.
