West Nile virus detected in mosquitoes found in Pismo Beach

West Nile virus has been detected in mosquitoes found in Pismo Beach.

The mosquitoes were collected July 9 and 10 at Chumash Park.

The San Luis Obispo County Public Health Department says the creek and two ponds at the park have since been treated with an insecticide, along with some areas closer to Pismo State Beach.

So far in California this year, there have been four confirmed human cases of West Nile Virus. One each in Glenn and Sacramento counties and two in Los Angeles County.
