[ARCHIVED] West Nile Virus Found in the City of Brea: Take Precautions

The Orange County Mosquito and Vector Control District (OCMVCD) has confirmed the first mosquito sample infected with West Nile virus (WNV) in the City of Brea.

The mosquitoes were collected in mosquito traps from Memory Garden Memorial Park & Mortuary earlier this week (8/9). OCMVCD will continue to monitor the situation and work with the park management and investigate the area for mosquito breeding sources.

Officials advise everyone to take precautions and wear mosquito repellents when mosquitoes are most active (dawn or dusk) and clear standing water, which is breeding ground for mosquitoes.
