Tarrant County health officials are reporting the county's first positive West Nile virus mosquito sample of 2016.
The sample was collected in Arlington, Tarrant County Public Health said in a press release Friday.
The city of Arlington confirmed the sample was collected in the area near Saddle Ridge Road at Yacht Club Drive. Ground spraying is scheduled on Monday, May 9, and Tuesday, May 10, between the hours of 9 p.m. and 5 a.m., weather permitting.
While no human cases of West Nile virus have been reported so far in 2016, officials said the positive mosquito sample is unusually early. The first positive sample is typically collected in June, they said.
