Serologic evidence of Jamestown Canyon virus infection in white-tailed deer populations from Connecticut.
In addition to the La Crosse and Jamestown Canyon virus cases, there were four other cases of California serogroup virus disease for which the specific infecting virus was unknown.
Cases were caused by WNV (2,205 cases, 95%), La Crosse virus (80), Jamestown Canyon virus (11), St.
Tsutsui and colleagues (9) showed that dairy calves lost their maternally derived antibodies against Akabane virus at -4 months of age, and Grimstad and colleagues (10) showed that young white-tailed deer lost their maternally derived antibodies against Jamestown Canyon virus at 5-6 months of age.
After WNV, the next most commonly reported cause of arboviral disease was La Crosse virus (LACV) (85 cases), followed by Jamestown Canyon virus (JCV) (22), Powassan virus (POWV) (15), and eastern equine encephalitis virus (EEEV) (eight).
