GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - The cities of Grand Forks and East Grand Forks are urging citizens to protect themselves against mosquito bites after a crow tested positive for the West Nile virus.

The mosquito is the most common method of transmitting the virus. When a mosquito feeds on an infected bird, it can pick up the virus and transmit it to other birds and occasionally mammals.

Health officials say most people infected with West Nile don’t develop symptoms. Those who do can experience a fever, head and body aches, skin rash and swollen lymph nodes.
