West Nile Detected In Moses Lake

The Grant County Health District says they have detected the first case of West Nile Virus in Moses Lake.

A mosquito sample from a trap near the intersection of Dodson Road and I-90 tested positive but so far there have not been any human or other animal related cases in the county this year.

It’s the 11th positive mosquito sample statewide in 2017.

Last year in Grant 51 mosquito samples and one horse were reported with West Nile Virus.
