A resident of Lambton County has been diagnosed with West Nile Virus, marking the region's first human case of 2020.
"The confirmed human case is a reminder for Lambton residents to remain vigilant and take precautions to prevent exposure to mosquitoes and to eliminate mosquito breeding sites on their property," a statement from Lambton Public Health said Wednesday.
The public health department said it had first confirmed West Nile Virus in mosquito pools in Petrolia and Oil Springs in August.
The public health unit said that despite the cooler temperatures, mosquito season is not over until frost and cold temperatures set in.
People are reminded to remove or reduce areas of standing water during fall clean up and take precautions if removing dead birds.
