Ottawa Public Health warns that area mosquitoes have again tested positive for West Nile virus (WNV) and the agency warns residents to protect themselves outdoors.

The health body noted that the positive results have come in early in the season, indicating that 2017 may have higher than usual WNV activity.

Residents are urged to cover up as much as possible when outdoors and to try to eliminate standing water areas in which mosquitoes can lay eggs.
