The first mosquitoes in Massachusetts to test positive for EEE this season have turned up in Westport. 

The Massachusetts Department of Health says the batch was collected on August 14th in Westport and are warning residents to take precautions when enjoying the great outdoors.

EEE activity has been low the last couple of years and with such a late showing this season, Deputy State Epidemiologist Dr. Catherine Brown said in a news release that this “indicates that trend might continue.”

EEE is a rare disease that can affect people of all ages. It can be dangerous and potentially fatal and is primarily spread to humans through infected mosquitoes.

The health department will continue to trap and monitor mosquitoes in Westport to monitor the risk.
