DENTON – High school football fans say the threat of West Nile virus will not keep them from stadiums. 

And in Denton County, neither will aerial spraying.  

Several cities opted in for spraying Friday and Saturday nights. Flower Mound hosts Keller Central.

Flower Mound is in the target area, but pilots will avoid the stadium until after the game.  

County health officials emphasize the chemical is harmless to humans. Denton County has experienced 145 confirmed cases of West Nile, including two deaths.
