Moultrie- The people in Moultrie are still wearing summer clothing despite a positive test for the deadly west Nile in their town, but don't let the clothes fool you.
These people are protecting themselves from mosquitos. "I usually use skin so soft," says Moultrie resident, Grace Johnson. The Colquitt county health department has issued warnings about personal protection and with the recent case West Nile virus has become very real to the people here.
"We all should take heed to the warnings," says furniture store owner Bob Herndon. Not everyone in Moultrie is taking extra precautions, one man says he isn't really thinking about it.
"I don't put on anything, they just don't bother me," admits Earnest Gay. While it may not bother him most people say they will continue to use repellent and stay covered up.
Colquitt County health officials say the official test results from the CDC on the suspected West Nile case there are expected next week.
