Eastern Equine Encephalitis
The AWRSD school health services team was notified from the Westminster Board of Health regarding the recent case of EEE (Eastern Equine Encephalitis) infection detected in a 5 year old horse in town. The horse had to be euthanized due to the severity of her illness.
Because of this finding it raised the EEE risk level in Westminster to “Critical” and the surrounding communities to “High”. These risk levels recommend that evening outdoor events be rescheduled until the weather becomes cool enough that mosquito activity will be minimal.
Attached you will find information sheets that will hopefully answer any questions and relieve any concerns you may have.
