Public Health: West Nile Virus

As we approach the end of mosquito season Public Health would like us to remind you of the precautions you can take to protect yourselves against West Nile Virus.

Clean Up

  • Clean up and empty containers where water collects (old tires, tin cans, flower pots, etc.)
  • Change water in bird baths weekly
  • Remove water that collects on pool covers
  • Turn over items such as wading pools, wheelbarrows and small boats
  • Clear eavestroughs and roof gutters
  • Unclog drainage ditches
  • Drill holes in the bottoms of containers so water can’t collect
  • Check that door and window screens are tight-fitting and in good repair

Cover Up

  • Wear light-coloured, long-sleeved shirts and pants
  • Use insect repellent containing DEET when outdoors; apply according to manufacturer’s instructions

Most people infected with West Nile virus have no symptoms or have flu-like symptoms such as fever, headache, body aches and fatigue.  Symptoms usually develop between two and fifteen days after bring bitten by an infected mosquito.

For more information about West Nile virus or to report standing water, contact York Region Health Connection at 1-800-361-5653 or visit york.ca/westnile
