The Manchester Board of Health was advised today, 09/20/19, by the Northeast Mosquito Control District that this week’s mosquito testing in Manchester was negative for both Eastern Equine Encephalitis and the West Nile Virus. Manchester remains at the moderate risk level, which means no heightened actions are necessary. Testing, including expanded collection sites, will continue through mid-October.
The Board of Health and the Mosquito Control District recommend that residents continue to use mosquito repellent until such time as we have had a hard frost.
Updated information regarding the mosquito testing results and Eastern Equine Encephalitis is available to residents at the following sites:
