A 76-year-old Georgetown man, hospitalized with Eastern equine encephalitis, died Sept. 27 of his illness, according to town officials, the third Massachusetts resident this year to die from the mosquito-borne disease. The man, who has not been publicly identified by health officials, became ill in early September, according to state Department of Public Health records. Georgetown, one of six North Shore communities that have since been designated as “critical” by state health officials for the extreme likelihood of more human infections, has canceled all outdoor activities on town-owned property between 3 and 9 p.m. until the first hard frost.
