West Nile Virus

Churchill County has experienced a record water year and has had to spread water to all sections of the county to lessen the amount of water in Lahontan Reservoir. This has lead to stagnant water bodies, which are prime conditions for mosquito breeding areas. Unfortunately, with the mosquitoes comes the risk of mosquito-borne illnesses. Testing is being conducted. Please refer to the attached PSA for more information. Questions should be directed to the Churchill County Mosquito, Vector, and Noxious Weed Abatement District at 775.423.2828. Please leave your name, address, and phone number when calling.
