    Tests to help pinpoint EEE exposure

    The Vermont Health Department is planning to hold the first of three clinics to test people for exposure to Eastern equine encephalitis, a mosquito-borne diseasethat killed two people last year. The study of volunteers from Brandon and Sudbury in Rutland County and Whiting in Addison County is to determine how many people were exposed to the virus, but did not get seriously ill. The first clinic is scheduled Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Brandon Senior Center. Additional clinics will be held May 14 at the Sudbury Town Hall and May 29 at the Whiting Town Hall.
