West Nile Virus:
Mosquitos in six testing locations around Naperville have tested positive for West Nile Virus. Due to those findings along with other mosquito batches testing positive throughout DuPage County, the DuPage County Health Department has set their Personal Protection Index to two, indicating a moderate risk. To protect yourself officials recommend you drain standing water around your yard, wear long pants and long sleeves, and use insect repellent with DEET.

In yesterday’s Naperville Now, we stated that the task force appointed for Moser Tower will be making a recommendation on the fate of the building: that is incorrect. The group has been tasked with collecting information and community perspective, reviewing and discussing various options, and then presenting their findings to the Riverwalk Commission. The Riverwalk Commission will then use this information to make their recommendation to City Council. We apologize for the error.
