Note: This message from Braintree came just days after The Massachusetts Department of Public Health confirmed the presence of Eastern equine encephalitis for the first time this year. For more on that, read our story here: Eastern Equine Encephalitis Virus Detected In MA

Use mosquito repellent containing DEET. Follow label instructions. Cover up when you’re outside with long sleeves and long pants.

Avoid time spent outdoors between dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active.

Remove standing water so mosquitoes don’t breed. Check around your home for flower pots, tires, and wading pools that might have standing water.

Fix any holes in your screens and make sure they are tightly attached to doors and windows in your home.

For more information, call the Braintree Health Department at (781) 794-8090 or visit
