EEE update from the town

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health has classified Lynnfield in a “moderate” risk level based one mammal-biting EEE positive mosquito. As of August 21, 2012 at 3:00 p.m .this risk level has not changed. Any change in risk level will be posted on the Town’s website.

Under a moderate risk, the MA DPH does not urge cancellation of outdoor events but rather recommends that people take precautions and use insect repellants. If the risk level is changed to “high” and sports or other outdoor events are scheduled, one should check with the coach/organizer for an alterative schedule. Again, any change in the risk level will be posted on the Town’s website. http://www.town.lynnfield.ma.us
