TUCSON, Ariz. -- West Nile is back with three cases in a week.

The Pima County Health Department reported the cases all came in this week and that the number may be on the rise.

They are warning people to get rid of standing water around the house as it serves as a breeding ground for mosquitoes

"Check your yard for standing water and looks for toys where water can collect," said Aaron Pacheco.

The health center always is telling people to avoid being outside during dusk and dawn because that's when mosquitoes are out in full force.
