At Friday’s conference call with the Director of Health from the North Central Health Department we learned that experts have determined that the EEE problem is no longer worsening with the mosquito population reducing each day. Although the scientific risk of contracting EEE remains low there is still a risk and the precautions outlined below should remain in effect. The risk will remain until we have our first frost. I specifically inquired about spraying as a preventive measure and was informed that spraying is not recommended at this time because spraying this late in the season has been determined not to be effective. We will continue to monitor and follow the advice of our public health experts. J.Christopher Kervick, First Selectman

Please review the attached information from the North Central District Health Department regarding the finding of mosquitoes testing positive for Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) in Windsor Locks and surrounding towns.  Please note that EEE is a rare, but serious viral disease.  The disease is spread by the bite of an infected adult mosquito; not from person-to-person contact.  There have been recent confirmed cases of the disease in Connecticut.
