The Indiana State Department of Health has confirmed the first human case of West Nile virus in Indiana this season.

This case is in RipleyCounty.

In addition to the human case, mosquito groups in nine counties have now tested positive for the virus.

Those counties include: Adams, Allen, Clinton, Grant, Hamilton, Jefferson, Starke, Vanderburgh and Vigo.

State health officials recommend the following preventative measures:

Avoid places where mosquitoes are biting;

Empty any standing water on your property;

Apply insect repellent containing DEET, picaradin or oil of lemon eucalyptus to clothes and exposed skin;

Install or repair screens on windows and doors to keep mosquitoes out of the home; and,

When possible, wear pants and long sleeves, especially if walking in wooded or marshy areas.
