A mosquito in Masontown has tested positive for the West Nile virus, according to the state Department of Environmental Protection.

On Wednesday, 21 mosquito samples tested positive for West Nile virus across Pennsylvania. The department tests daily for the virus.

Last week, a mosquito in Penn Township, Westmoreland County, tested positive for the virus.

Pennsylvania's West Nile Virus Control Program includes trapping mosquitoes, collecting dead birds and monitoring horses and people for the virus.
