    State widens West Nile warning

    Advertisement

    The state Department of Public Health says West Nile virus has been detected in mosquitoes collected in both Concord and Lincoln. Because of multiple positive results for the virus and similarities in mosquito habitat and historic risk patterns, the two communities as well as Bedford, Lexington, Wellesley, and Weston have been deemed to have a moderate risk for the virus. As a result, local residents are encouraged to protect against being bitten by mosquitoes, and to remove areas of standing water on their property.
