Reduce your risk of West Nile Virus

Saskatchewan residents are advised to take steps to lower their chance of contracting West Nile virus infection this summer.

Typically, the Culex tarsalis mosquitoes that carry West Nile virus are active from mid-July to the end of August. The level of risk depends largely on the weather.

Most people who get infected with West Nile virus will experience no symptoms, or only mild ones like fever, headaches and body aches. However, there is a small chance of developing a more serious illness, West Nile virus neuroinvasive disease. This can lead to inflammation of the brain and even death.
