West Nile Virus Information

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health has announced for this season the “First West Nile Virus-Positive Mosquito Sample.” in a Town near us. Through bites, this mosquito can infect humans with the virus that causes Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE), which can be a serious illness.

Therefore, Mayor Sullivan and the Board of Health are urging all residents to take precautions and use bug spray when doing outdoor activities.
