Update: Aerial Spraying for Mosquitoes

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) and the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources (MDAR) have announced that aerial spraying for mosquitoes will take place in specific areas of southeastern Massachusetts, including portions of Easton, beginning tonight, Thursday, August 8, 2019, due to the high risk for the Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) virus. We are encouraging residents to visit DPH’s website for the latest updates on spraying, DPH’s press release for more information on the chemical the state has chosen and the precautions they are recommending, and the aerial spraying map.  Please also visit the Easton Board of Health's mosquito control webpage for additional information and ways to stay safe from mosquito-borne diseases.
