Prevent Mosquito-carried Infections

July 21, 2020.  The re-emergence of mosquito-borne illnesses, specifically West Nile Virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis here in Massachusetts has prompted the Dept. of Public Health to remind us of the following tips during this year's "mosquito season"?

Protect yourself and your family by doing the following:

  • Use insect repellents any time you are outdoors
  • Wear long-sleeved clothing
  • Schedule outdoor activities to avoid the hours from dusk to dawn during peak mosquito season
  • Repair damaged window and door screens
  • Remove standing water from the areas around your home
