Westchester County Commissioner of Health Sherlita Amler said in a statement residents should remove standing water that sits near their homes.

A vaccine is available for horses but not for humans.

West Nile-positive insects were also caught in Bridgeport, Darien, Easton, New Canaan, Stamford, Stratford and Waterbury earlier this year.
