contribute's picture

Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) has been confirmed in mammal-biting mosquitoes in Hopkinton, Westborough and Southborough. With the forecast including a reduction in humidity and warm overnight temperatures, there is a high risk for human contact with mammal-biting mosquitoes. Consequently, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health is proposing to increase the risk rating for the region on Thursday and is advising the residents within the region to utilize insect repellent, wear protective clothing and reduce our time out of doors in the evening and overnight hours.

They quickly embraced the advantages of living in a small, family-oriented town of what was then about 6,000 people.
