    The city of Fort Worth is teaming up with Kroger to promote awareness about West Nile virus.

    Officials from the city and the health department will staff a trailer and provide education on West Nile virus on Saturday at the Kroger Marketplace on the 3300-block of Texas Sage Trail.

    Residents of the city are encouraged to stop by and learn how to take preventative measures to protect themselves against the virus. Health experts will share prevention tips and also answer questions related to the virus.

    The trailer will be staffed from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

    On Aug. 20-21, the same activity will take place at the Kroger on the 3100-block of University Drive, near the campus of Texas Christian University, between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. The trailer will serve as a learning resource for students arriving to the area for the new school year.
