>Subject: Dead Crow with West Nile on Muirfield
>Yesterday we found a dead crow on our front lawn (284
>S. Muirfield, on the Third Street corner).
>Remembering last year’s health warnings, we called the
>County Health Department. The bird tested positive
>for West Nile virus.
>The doctor who called to report this to us made the
>usual recommendations about mosquitoes, which spread
>the virus. Namely, avoid them and drain any standing
>water where they might breed.
>He also said to see a doctor right away if you
>experience fever and tell the physician that West Nile
>virus was found in your neighborhood.
>Sorry to be the bearer of worrisome news. But better
>to be informed.
