For residents of towns that make up the Pomperaug Health District – Southbury, Woodbury, and Oxford, the risk of acquiring any mosquito-borne disease, whether it be Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) or West Nile Virus, is very low at this time of year. From a public health standpoint, PDDH and the Connecticut Mosquito Management Program recommend that residents take personal protective measures to prevent mosquito bites until the first hard frost of the fall. It is not necessary for residents in our District to cancel or limit activity around dusk or dawn. Spraying pesticides to reduce mosquito populations is not likely to be effective at this time of year.
