[ARCHIVED] UPDATED Information Regarding EEE - Date of Record 08/30/19


 Aerial spraying was completed as planned in Worcester and Middlesex Counties the nights of August 26 and 27, 2019.  A second aerial spraying will not occur due to weather conditions.  However, the Central Massachusetts Mosquito Control Project will continue to trap and test mosquitoes in Shrewsbury.

It remains critically important for people in communities at critical, high and moderate risk for EEE to continue to take personal precautions against mosquito bites. These steps include using EPA-approved bug spray, wearing long sleeves and pants outdoors to reduce exposed skin, and cancelling outdoor activities in the hours from dusk to dawn when mosquitoes are most active.

Please continue practicing the 5D's (Drain, DEET, Dawn/Dusk, Dress).
