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

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.

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.
