Dead crow found in the North Shore tests positive for West Nile virus

The North Shore Health Department reports a dead crow has tested positive for West Nile virus.  This is the first bird that tested positive for West Nile virus in Milwaukee County since surveillance for the mosquito-transmitted virus began May 1. West Nile virus is spread to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito. Mosquitoes acquire the virus by feeding on infected birds. North Shore residents should be aware of West Nile virus and protect themselves against mosquito bites.

The North Shore Health Department has a proud and respected tradition of providing excellent health services to our North Shore communities.  With our knowledgeable staff,we are continuing our mission to improve our residents' health, prevent disease, and safeguard the environment through an organized, collaborative effort.

The North Shore Health Department works with a Board of Health, comprised of a licensed medical adviser and members appointed for a two-year term by village presidents or the mayor of each community.  Our staff consists of a health officer, an administrative assistant, a registered sanitarian, and registered nurses who are public health nurses.

The North Shore Health Department is one of the many benefits that make living in our communities very special.  Our services and programs are thoughtfully selected and carefully planned to make our communities safer and healthier, and to provide a better way of life for all residents. We offer a wide variety of programs for adults, seniors, children and infants.  Some services are free - others are available at affordable fees.  

Our new North Shore Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) is now available for viewing.  Look and see how you can help yourself and your community become a healthier place to live, work and play.  Stop in at either the Brown Deer or Shorewood office of the Health Department and ask to see a copy.
