Following last week’s detection of West Nile virus in Beverly, the Northeast Massachusetts Mosquito Control District sprayed sections of Raymond Farms, Shingleville, and Ryal Side in an attempt to reduce mosquito populations in those areas of the city. According to the state, the virus is most commonly transmitted to humans by the bite of an infected mosquito. The city advised residents to wear long sleeves, long pants, and socks, especially from dusk to dawn, the peak biting hours. For more information, call the Beverly Health Department at 978-921-8591.
