The nation is currently seeing its highest number of West Nile virus cases in several years. South Dakota ranks within the top six states reporting West Nile virus cases in the nation. There have been eight human cases reported in Minnehaha County and two in Lincoln County.

The majority of the reported activity has occurred in the northeastern part of the state. South Dakota has reported 98 human cases and 1 death to date.
As a reminder, it is still peak transmission season for West Nile virus. The Sioux Falls Vector Control Division continues to actively seek out areas for treatment and will spray if necessary. We ask that you continue to take personal protective measures to complement our efforts in order to keep West Nile cases at bay.
Follow the four “Ds” of mosquito control:
 Dress in long-sleeved, light-colored clothing.
 Avoid being outside between dusk and dawn.
 Drain any standing water around your property.
 Use a mosquito repellant containing DEET when going outside.
