The Brazos County Health Department announced Friday three additional human cases with presumptively positive lab tests are awaiting confirmation. The cases are being tested by the Texas Department of State Health Services laboratory.
To date there are nine confirmed cases of human West Nile virus in Brazos County.
The Brazos County Health Department urges the public to protect themselves, their homes and their yards from mosquitoes.
When outside, wear long, loose-fitting, light-colored clothing to avoid mosquito bites, and use insect repellent products containing DEET.
To protect your house keep doors, porches, and window screens in good condition and frames sealed tightly to help keep mosquitoes out of the house.
To protect your yard get rid of all standing water, change water in pet dishes, and cover trash containers so they will not collect water.
