CUMBERLAND COUNTY -- Health officials say a bird tested positive for West Nile Virus. They say a homeowner, in Greenup, reported a dead bird. The health department tested it and just received results Tuesday. There are no human cases in the area.

Officials remind people to reduce exposure when mosquitoes are most active, repel mosquitoes with clothes and bug spray and report dead birds or standing water to health officials.
