"Public Health thanks the community for being diligent in removing standing water and eliminating the places where mosquitoes can breed", Callanan said.

"These traps are tested weekly from June to September, and with this recent confirmation of West Nile virus activity, we are increasing our efforts in the area surrounding the positive traps by looking for breeding sites and re-treating catch basins with larvicide".

Three mosquito pools have tested positive for the West Nile Virus, the Portsmouth City Health Department reports.

Most people infected with the virus do not show symptoms, although more severe symptoms may occur, including fever, headaches, body aches, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, and sometimes swollen lymph glands or a skin rash. While there is no cure or vaccination for the virus, symptoms can be treated to help aid recovery.
