West Nile Virus Program Announces Positive Mosquito Results In Now 3 More Counties

The Department of Environmental Protection Tuesday announced positive mosquito results for West Nile Virus have been found in Newtown Township, Bucks County, Darby Township, Delaware County and Manchester Township, York County.
Other positive mosquito results have been found in these other counties this season-- Berks, Centre, Chester, Cumberland, Lackawanna, Lawrence and Schuylkill.
[Note: The budget passed by House Republicans in April cut West Nile/Zika Virus Control funding by $338,000.  House Republicans increased the Black Fly spraying line item by $100,000 (the ONLY item not cut in DEP's budget).  Black Flies are annoying on golf courses and at outdoor events, but don't spread disease.]
