West Nile Virus in Dover

Email just now from Mike –


The Board of Health was notified today that a mosquito sample taken in Dover tested positive for the West Nile Virus(WNV). The notice was a moderate risk notice. I notified the School Department and the Parks & Recreation Department. I also called Norfolk County Mosquito Control and spoke to David Lawson, Director, who confirmed this. He said recently positive samples have been found in other area towns. There are no positive findings in horses or people in this area as of this date. He said that the group most at risk for complications from WNV  are the elderly as they might have weakened immune systems. I am notifying Roberta Lynch so that she can take appropriate action to alert Medfield Seniors. Mike
