One Valdosta girl was infected last summer and is now confined to a wheel chair. Mosquito spraying efforts are underway in Lowndes County to help stop the possible spread of the virus.
South Georgia health officials say this serves as a reminder to cover up or wear mosquito repellant if you're going outside.
