West Nile Virus

Welcome to Burlington County's information page on the West Nile Virus. The first North American appearance of the West Nile Virus occurred in 1999 in New York City. Since then, the virus has spread across the entire country.

The Board of Chosen Freeholders, along with the Health Department and the Mosquito Control Division of the Highway Department are bringing you this web page in order to inform the residents of Burlington County with concern and interest in knowing more about the virus.
Birds For Testing
Here are a few pictures of the birds that can be submitted for testing. A crow is 12 inches or longer from tip of beak to tip of tail and is entirely black, including feathers, eyes, beak, and feet.
