The city of Toronto has its first reported case of West Nile virus for 2020.
Public Health officials have received a positive lab report in an adult resident.
The virus is an infection passed on through the bite of an infected mosquito.
While officials say the risk of getting infected is currently low, residents are advised to take precautions to avoid bites, including wearing light-coloured clothing, long pants, long-sleeved shirts, particularly during peak mosquito-biting hours at dawn and dusk.
Last year, there were nine confirmed human cases of West Nile virus in Toronto.
