(KSL News) West Nile danger is increasing in the state. The virus has been found in sentinel chickens in Davis and Duchesne counties -- and in mosquito pools in Salt Lake County.

Only one case of the illness has been reported in a human, and it is believed that he contracted it in Colorado.

People are being warned to wear insect repellent and long sleeves and to steer clear of standing water to avoid the illness.
