Mosquitoes test positive for West Nile Virus in Kearns, West Valley City and Magna

May contain: person testing mosquitoes for West Nile Virus

Mosquitoes have tested positive for West Nile Virus within the Magna Mosquito Abatement District (MMAD) boundaries. MMAD employees have tested mosquitoes since May and on July 27, 2022 we found our first West Nile Virus positive mosquito sample. Since then we have found 13 additional positive mosquito samples around the district. We are doing what we can to mitigate the mosquito population but even with our efforts you will still see mosquitoes at times. Please do what you can to protect yourself from mosquito bites from dusk to dawn.
