West Nile Virus in Lake County

This year, there have been 8 confirmed human West Nile Virus cases in Lake County. 

Nuisance mosquito populations were particularly high during the last two weeks of September due to heavy rains earlier in the month and above-average temperatures. 

Don't forget to stay vigilant against mosquitoes, which will remain active until the first hard frost. Learn how to protect yourself and your family from West Nile virus on the Health Department’s website,, or call the West Nile hotline at (847) 377-8300.
