Mosquito sample tests positive for West Nile

Posted: Updated:

The West Nile virus is back in Central Texas.

The city of Georgetown says that mosquitoes collected in the western part of town tested positive.

The Health Department says it's the first positive test for West Nile since June. There have been no human cases of West Nile virus reported.

Health experts say it's unusual for a positive test so late in the year and that the mosquito population has started to dwindle because of colder weather.
