Last updated on Friday, August 27, 2010

(BLOOMINGTON, IN) - West Nile virus has been found in Monroe County for the second time in three years.

Monroe County Health Department officials are not revealing the location were the positive mosquitoes were found.

Officials say that just because positive-testing mosquitoes were found in two different locations, that does not mean they are not also in several other areas of the county.

They say that mosquitoes can fly up to a mile.
