West Nile Virus Confirmed in Mosquito from Holyoke

Holyoke had one WNV positive mosquito sample identified on September 2, 2020. The mosquito was trapped in the southwest quadrant of Holyoke.

This mosquito was collected and identified through monitoring provided by the Pioneer Valley Mosquito Control District.

WNV is most commonly transmitted to humans by the bite of an infected mosquito. The mosquitoes that carry this virus are common throughout the state, and are found in urban as well as more rural areas. While WNV can infect people of all ages, people over the age of 50 are at higher risk for severe infection.

By taking a few, common-sense precautions, people can help to protect themselves and their loved ones.
