      EEE detected in mosquito test pool

      Eastern Equine Encephalitis has been found in another mosquito test pool.

      The virus was detected in what is primarily a bird-biting type of mosquito. It was in a batch that was trapped on the east side of Freetown.

      The finding means there will be mosquito spraying done overnight Wednesday into Thursday morning, weather permitting, in the areas of Industrial Park and Sassaquin Pond and also as Buttonwood Park.

      If you live in those areas you may want to keep your windows closed during spraying.
