Mosquitoes tested near the home of a Crowley resident who has the disease are not carrying the West Nile virus, officials said Wednesday.
The resident, Tarrant County’s first human case of West Nile this year, has the neuroinvasive form of the disease. The illness was reported Monday.
Since then, Crowley workers set up traps near the home of the resident. The traps were tested along with regular samples on Tuesday, according to a Crowley news release.
Tarrant County Public Health reported that all the samples were negative for the West Nile virus.
The city will continue to take preventive measures, but no spraying is scheduled.
