Covering up and using bug spray when you're outside this time of year might be a good idea.
"Every year around this time we tend to get mosquitos -- reporting from the state that there are mosquitos that are testing positive for West Nile virus," said Anne Fountain, director of health and social services for the city of Stamford.
The state Mosquito Management Program found mosquitos in Stamford that tested positive for the disease.
The Centers for Disease Control says most people infected won't have any symptoms. Only 1 in 5 will develop symptoms like fever and headache. And it's even more unlikely for people to develop a severe case -- the CDC says less than one percent.
Taking a proactive approach, Miller says the city's finished a round of larvaciding -- targeting mosquitos in 14,000 catch basins around Stamford.
This summer, the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Center found positive mosquitos in several other towns. But so far, there's been no patient cases.
