Bird Tests Positive For West Nile

A second bird has now tested positive for the West Nile Virus in Lexington.

Fayette County Health Department officials say a crow in the Tates Creek Road area tested positive a few days ago.

This is the third case in Lexington so far this year, following a blue jay and a mosquito sample. But so far, no people have been infected.

The health department has been stepping up mosquito spraying efforts in the last few weeks.
