West Nile Virus
Current West Nile Virus Activity in the Coachella Valley
The District uses mosquito traps (CDC - CO2 baited traps and gravid traps) and sentinel chicken flocks as part of our surveillance program to detect West Nile virus (WNV) activity. The traps and sentinel chicken coops are set up throughout the Coachella Valley in both urban and rural habitats. The map below displays within a quarter mile the locations where mosquitoes or sentinel chickens have tested positive for WNV this year. Learn more about WNV and the District's response to WNV activity.
The map below is for 2015 (updated April 27, 2015).
