Michigan health department encourages officials to reschedule outdoor activities as EEE cases increase

Saturday, 12 September 2020

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is encouraging local officials in counties affected by Eastern Equine Encephalitis to consider postponing, rescheduling or cancelling outdoor activities occurring at or after dusk, particularly activities that involve children.This would include events such as late evening sports practices or games. The MDHHS recommendation is being made out of an abundance of caution to protect the public health, and applies until the first hard frost of the year.

 

 

 

 

As of Thursday, Sept. 10, EEE has been confirmed in 19 horses in nine Michigan counties including Barry, Clare, Isabella, Jackson, Kent, Mecosta, Montcalm, Newaygo and Oakland. Additional animal cases are under investigation.This is twice as many animal cases as the same time last year. To date, no human cases have been identified. There is an EEE vaccine available for horses, but not for people.
