Second Horse Infected with Triple-E in Belchertown

A second horse in Belchertown has tested positive for Triple-E.  That prompted the state to raise the threat level for Triple-E in neighboring Amherst to high.  The threat level is now moderate in Hadley and South Hadley. While it’s been raised to low in the towns of Hatfield, Northampton and Whately.  The state Department of Public Health is urging high-threat communities to cancel outdoor evening events for the rest of the mosquito season.  Amherst officials cancelled a popular outdoor movie event Wednesday night.  Eastern Equine Encephalitis is a mosquito-borne disease.
