Health officials said Thursday that two different groups of mosquitoes tested positive for West Nile Virus.
One test group was collected on the south side, between High Street and Parsons Avenue, and another was collected on the north side, between Interstate 71 and Indianola Avenue.
Officials stressed the importance of using preventative measures to avoid exposure, such as removing standing water if possible and to avoid activities between dusk and dawn.
Residents were also encouraged to wear insect repellant.
