Rockland has its first confirmed human case of West Nile virus. The patient has not been identified, other than it’s an Orangetown resident over the age of 50. Most mosquitoes do not test positive for the virus, but a bite from a West Nile Virus-infected mosquito can cause serious illness, and in some cases, death. West Nile symptoms include fever, headache and body aches, nausea, and occasionally a skin rash and swollen lymph glands. If you think you have symptoms of West Nile Virus, see your doctor right away. To learn more, call the Health Department at 845-364-3173.
