The West Nile Virus is now in Gibson County. Health Department officials released information Monday saying that a sample pool of mosquitoes collected within Gibson County has tested positive for the West Nile Virus. Gibson now joins Knox, Pike, Daviess, Posey, Warrick and Vanderburgh counties in southwest Indiana as having positive samples collected. Health officials continue to urge residents to protect themselves against possible infection by using an insect repellent containing DEET, limiting time outside betweek dusk and dawn, and making sure that properties are free of standing water in places such as old tires, trash cans, clogged gutters because that's where mosquitoes breed. Keeping the grass cut also helps as well.
