Mosquitoes have tested positive for West Nile virus in three North Shore communities.

West Nile-positive mosquitoes have been trapped in Lincolnwood, Northfield and Winnetka, according to the North Shore Mosquito Abatement District.

Officials are reminding residents in those communities to stay covered up or indoors during dawn and dusk hours and to remove any standing water around their homes.

No human cases of West Nile have been found in Illinois yet this year.
