The stadium, surrounded by residential areas, is ready for a Friday night football game.

OPH is targeting areas where the county is seeing the disease-carrying mosquitoes and will continue to conduct adult mosquito control events.

To prevent catching the virus, you should take measures to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes. Ten of those were confirmed and six were probable, the health department said in a release.

In 2017, 90 human cases of West Nile virus were recorded in IL.

There have also been 22 human cases of West Nile confirmed to date for 2018 with two residents contracting the virus in the Will and DuPage County portions of Aurora. Try to avoid outdoor activities during these times.

DEET: Use insect repellent containing DEET or picaridin. Follow the directions on the package.

Any standing water close to home should be emptied, in order to eliminate possible breeding grounds for mosquitos.

Keep mosquitoes outside: Use air conditioning, or window and door screens.

Watch for health department alerts and warnings about mosquito disease outbreak. Mosquitoes that carry West Nile virus look for stagnant water to breed in, so be sure gutters and eaves are clear of leaves and debris. About one out of 150 infected people develop swelling of the brain or brain tissue, that in some cases, can result in death.

Byers said the infection can cause encephalitis or meningitis, which can lead to paralysis, coma and possibly death. EEE is rare illness in humans, and only a few cases are reported in the United States each year, according to this DPH press release.
