Belchertown EEE Threat Critical

The Eastern Equine Encephalitis threat level has been raised to critical in Belchertown.  Officials say a horse that died Friday at George Hannum Road was infected with the triple-E virus.  The state Department of Public Health urges communities designated as critical to cancel evening outdoor events for the rest of the mosquito season.  Triple-E infected mosquitoes have also been found in Amherst where the threat level is moderate, and mosquitoes carrying the West Nile Virus have been found in Northampton.
