April 14, 2014

Mice carry the hantavirus all year, but spring marks the start of the season when the risk of exposure rises, according to a press release from the Mono County Health Department.

Buildings that have been closed and unused all winter often provide habitats for deer mice, and when they are opened in the spring for cleaning, human exposure to the hantavirus is possible.
