The virus' symptoms can appear 13 to 14 days after an infection, and initial symptoms include fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, muscle aches, weakness or rash, but most people don't exhibit any symptoms, according to the release. Of those, fewer than 1 percent develop the severe neuroinvasive form that can lead to hospitalization, critical illness, chronic disability or death.

There are no human cases of the virus in Weld County and only one in the state. Adult mosquitoes are trapped and tested to provide an estimate of the number of infected mosquitoes.

Mosquitos have been trapped in counties to the south - Mesa and Delta - and across the continental divide in the Eastern Slope communities of Boulder, Larimer, Jefferson and Weld counties.

There are no medications to treat or vaccines to prevent the virus. It is important to reduce your chance of being bitten by mosquitoes.
