YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) - The state Health Department says a Yakima County woman in her 40s is being treated for West Nile virus.

It’s the fourth case of the disease this year in Washington.

A Yakima Health District official, Diane Bock, told the Yakima Herald-Republic (https://bit.ly/1vtzJJy) it’s unknown if the woman was infected locally, but the virus was found in the county this summer in mosquitoes.
