  • State's First West Nile Case Identified, Health Officials Say Take Precautions

    Dumping out standing water around the yard – even as little as a half cup full – and closing down mosquitoes access to one’s home are the two best ways to avoid contracting West Nile Virus according to Donna Culbert, Newtown Health District Director.

    Her advice comes on the heels of an August 29 announcement that a Stratford resident has tested positive for West Nile Virus (WNV) infection.
