The State of South Dakota’s Health Department reports a Turner County resident is the year’s first human case of West Nile virus.
In Sioux Falls, the city entomologist says there have not been any cases of West Nile in a mosquito or a person in the city in 2019. Denise Patton also says there are plans to spray the city for mosquitoes Tuesday night and Wednesday.
Of course, many people will be outside in the coming days for the Fourth of July holiday.
Health officials remind you to put DEET or other mosquito repellents on your clothes as well as exposed skin.
