More Mosquitoes Test Positive for West Nile

It's no surprise, but there has been another positive test for West Nile in Brazos County.

A batch of mosquitoes collected more than a week ago on Morningside Drive in Bryan tested positive for the disease, though officials remind all residents that the entire county is positive for the disease.

Here are the four Ds that health officials ask you do to prevent contraction of the disease:

- Drain standing water around the house
- Wear insect repellent with DEET
- Stay indoors at dusk and dawn
- Wear long sleeves and pants when outdoors
