Town of Carver at Moderate Risk for West Nile
We were notified this morning that a few mosquitoes in Carver have tested positive for the West Nile virus. As a result, the Board of Health and the School Department have placed a ban on all outdoor activities or events in Carver between dusk and dawn effective immediately.
Please note the information below and the flyer from the Board of Health in Carver. School events that are scheduled to be indoors are not cancelled – only events planned to be primarily outdoors after dusk in Carver. Groups or teams that have an evening event or game in another town do not need to be rescheduled. Any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Board
From the Carver, MA Board of Health.
