   On August 12 , 2022 The Massachusetts Department of Public Health ( MDPH ) informed the Rockland Board of Health  that West Nile virus ( WNV ) has been detected in mosquitoes collected from Rockland
    , Massachusetts .
    
   WNV is mostly transmitted to humans by the bite of an infected mosquito . While WNV can infect people of all ages , people over the age of 50 are at higher risk for severe infection .  
    
   By taking a few , c......ommon sense precautions , people can help to protect themselves and their loved ones:
    
   Avoid Mosquito Bites
   Apply Insect Repellent when you go outdoors . Use a repellent with DEET 
    
   Clothing Can Help reduce mosquito bites . Wearing long - sleeves , long pants and socks when outdoors will help keep mosquitoes away from your skin .
    
   Be Aware of Peak Mosquito Hours - The hours from dusk to dawn are peak biting times for many mosquitoes .  
    
   Mosquito - Proof Your Home
   Drain Standing Water 
   Install or Repair Screens
    
    
   While the Rockland Board of Health continues to work closely with the MDPH and other agencies , locally we are providing residents with fact sheet on WNV and on reducing exposure to mosquitoes that are available at Rockland Board of Health Office and by visiting
   https://www . rockland - ma . gov/378/Board - of - Health
    
   Information about WNV and reports of current and historical WNV virus activity in Massachusetts can be found on the MDPH website at:
