Two confirmed cases of West Nile Virus in Parker County

August 29, 2012 by Katie Martinez

Officials with the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) confirmed today that there are two cases of the West Nile Virus in Parker County.

The cases involve a 75 year-old Poolville male living in the 76487 zip code and a 64 year-old Weatherford female living in the 76086 zip code.

These are the only two confirmed cases of West Nile Virus in Parker County.

According to DSHS officials, the best defense to avoiding the West Nile Virus is to practice these habits, known as the “Four D’s:

Use insect repellent containing DEET, picaridin or oil of lemon eucalyptus.

Dress in long sleeves and long pants when you are outside.

Stay indoors at dusk and dawn, when mosquitoes are most active.

Drain standing water where mosquitoes breed. Common breeding sites include old tires, flowerpots and clogged rain gutters.
