A chicken in Fillmore has tested positive for West Nile virus. Ventura County health officials are warning residents to take precautions including removal of standing water and wearing insect repellent when outside. Last month a horse in Simi Valley tested positive for the virus. There have been 112 human cases of West Nile across California this year, but none so far in Ventura County.
