West Nile Virus

West Nile Virus (WNV) is a potentially serious illness especially in individuals 50 years of age or older. It is transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito.

Each year, Peel Public Health develops a WNV Prevention Plan to monitor WNV activity in Peel and help reduce the risk of WNV to Peel residents.

Learn more about West Nile Virus and the important steps to take to prevent infected mosquitoes from harming your children and family.
