Albany --  With another case of West Nile virus reported, this time in DeKalb County, an Albany Commissioner is stepping up efforts to protect people here.

Jon Howard will hold a public hearing on West Nile Virus Saturday. He represents East Albany where a man died from West Nile last year.    

"Those individuals that are over 50-years-old have been the victim of the West Nile Virus and that can be for a number of reasons, the medication they are on, or because their immune system is very low," said Howard.    

 If you want to learn more about protecting yourself from West Nile, the meeting is Saturday morning at 10:00 at the East Albany Community Center, on East Oglethorpe Boulevard.
