West Nile is a virus most commonly spread to people by mosquito bites and cases occur mostly during mosquito season, which starts in the summer and continues through fall. While most people recover without any long-term problems, some develop a more severe infection that can lead to complications and even death - especially those over 50 years of age, he said. One in five people infected with the virus will exhibit symptoms such as fever, headache, body aches, nausea or a skin rash.

There are four levels of West Nile Virus risk in MA: low, moderate, high and critical. A statewide listing is available at the Illinois Department of Public Health's web site.

The risk level for the rest of the Berkshires and Western Massachusetts is "low", according to the the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
