Mosquitoes test positive for West Nile Virus in West Valley City

May contain: person testing mosquitoes for West Nile Virus

Mosquitoes have tested positive for West Nile Virus in West Valley City. Magna Mosquito Abatement District (MMAD) employees have tested mosquitoes since May and last week on July 27, 2022 we found our first West Nile Virus positive mosquito sample. 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.
