Oswego County Health Department reminds residents to ‘fight the bite’

OSWEGO COUNTY – Summer is here and public health officials are reminding residents to “fight the bite” and prevent mosquito-borne illnesses.

Usually considered a nuisance pest, mosquitoes can carry diseases such as the Eastern equine encephalitis virus (EEEV) and West Nile virus (WNV). Occasionally, they can transmit these viruses to people and some animals, causing illness and sometimes death.
