“Per recent laboratory results received from our army collaborators on West Nile Virus surveillance, the following mosquito pool was found positive for West Nile Virus:
• one pool containing 2 Culex sp. mosquitoes, collected on July 29 and confirmed on August 6, from the Massachusetts Avenue Heights neighborhood in Ward 3.
