The Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced today that mosquitoes in York County tested positive for Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE).

Maine's Health and Environmental Testing Laboratory (HETL) confirmed the presence of EEE in a single mosquito pool (a collection that contains 1-50 mosquitoes) collected on September 6, 2019, in the town of Lebanon.

The public can reduce risk of being infected with EEE by using insect repellent, wearing protective clothing, and staying indoors while mosquitoes are most active.

The MDHHS said all MI residents can stay healthy by following these steps to avoid mosquito bites: • Apply insect repellents that contain the active ingredient DEET, or other U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-registered product to exposed skin or clothing, and always follow the manufacturer's directions for use.

EEE is a virus that is transmitted through the bite of an infected mosquito. It can not be transmitted from human to human or animal to human.

Nine unvaccinated horses Barry, Kalamazoo, Lapeer, and St. Joseph counties contracted EEE, along with five deer found in Barry, Cass, Genesee, Kalamazoo, and Van Buren counties.

EEE "is one of a group of mosquito-transmitted viruses that can cause inflammation of the brain (encephalitis)", the CDC says.

The recommendations are a precaution that applies until the first hard frost of the year.

A deer in Genesee County and a horse in Lapeer County signal an increase in EEE activity in MI, which has sickened seven people and led to three deaths.

In neighboring MA, officials confirmed the state's eighth human case of EEE Friday.

Symptoms of EEE usually appear four to 10 days after a person is bitten by an infected mosquito. It can turn into severe encephalitis, which could present symptoms such as headache, disorientation, tremors, seizures and paralysis.

Of the three cases in Kalamazoo County, one turned fatal.

Anyone experiencing these symptoms is encouraged to contact a medical professional immediately.

No human vaccine against EEE or WNV infection is available. There is no treatment for EEE.
