A crow found in Milwaukee County has tested positive for the West Nile virus. West Nile virus is spread to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito who acquire the virus by feeding on infected birds.
To protect yourself against the West Nile virus, the North Health Department recommends:
Crows, blue jays, and ravens are the most common carriers of West Nile virus. To report a sick or dead bird, call the Dead Bird Reporting Hotline at 1-800-433-1610.
