The Indiana State Department of Health has collected data that some mosquitoes have tested positive for West Nile virus in Steuben County.

The Steuben County Health Department served a public health notice on the issue Wednesday (September 6th, 2017).

In the last month, mosquitoes in 53 of Indiana's 92 counties have tested positive for the West Nile virus, and two human cases have been confirmed; one in Hamilton County and one in Lake County. There have also been two confirmed cases of West Nile Virus in horses in Adams County and two in LaGrange County.

The Indiana State Department of Health anticipates increased West Nile activity statewide throughout mosquito season, which will last until the first hard freeze.

The Steuben County Health Department reassures that the State's findings were only in mosquitoes, and that the testing was done during a standard test that is normally done this time of year. At this time no other animals, such as horses, or humans have contracted the virus in Steuben County.

Steuben County Health Department Officials say that those who may have concerns should contact the Indiana State Health Department or visit their website (www.StateHealth.in.gov).
