Outdoor evening activities canceled

In the wake of West Nile virus and Eastern equine encephalitis being found in mosquitoes collected in Hanover, local health officials have canceled all outdoor evening activities held at recreation fields and on school property. “Unfortunately, having infected mosquitoes is becoming more and more common and we need to take precautions — especially at peak times,” said Hanover Health Agent Anthony Marino. The local Board of Health is working closely with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health to protect residents from the infectious mosquitoes, and canceling events on town-owned property from sunset to sunrise is just one precautionary measure. “Residents need to use common-sense preventative measures like using repellent with DEET in it and wearing long-sleeve shirts and pants,” Marino said.
