More EEE-positive mammal-biting mosquitoes have been found in Easton, and Sharon health officials today are urging residents to take precautions when outside from dawn to dusk.
The mosquitoes came from the same site as those in which Eastern Equine Encephalitis was detected recently, the first EEE-positive mosquitoes in Massachusetts this year, Sharon health officials said.
News of those first mosquitoes was announced last Wednesday. Sharon Public Health Nurse Sheila Miller distributed safety tips during the Sharon Lakeside Concert at Veteran's Memorial Park and Beach that night.
The state will spray in these communities, Sharon health officials said: Bridgewater, Carver, Easton, Halifax, Lakeville, Middleboro, Norton, Plympton, Raynham, Taunton and West Bridgewater.
Miller said last week that the batch location was near Easton's border with Raynham and Taunton, not Sharon.
Easton Patch has more details about the latest positive test.
