EEE detected in southeastern MA, mosquito spraying continues

Dear fellow Hanoverians:
Based on recent Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) positive mosquito
detections in the southeastern portion of the state, the Massachusetts
Department of Public Health (DPH) has raised the EEE risk level from
‘low’ to ‘moderate’. Though no positive mosquito samples have been
found in Hanover, the DPH and the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural
Resources (MDAR) announced recently that aerial spraying for mosquitoes
will take place in specific areas of southeastern Massachusetts, including
Hanover. Spraying began Thursday, August 8, 2019, and will continue over
several evenings.

For additional information, residents are encouraged to visit for updated
mosquito results, maps, and incidence of positive mosquito samples.
