UPDATE: Activity Ban Lifted
This afternoon we were given new information by the Board of Health in regards to mosquitoes with the West Nile virus. Based on the current information the Carver Board of Health has decided to lift the ban on school events and activities. The town is distributing the flyer available for download below.
Please be advised, that the tests on mosquitoes in Carver will be conducted regularly throughout the fall and we will keep you up to date as we are provided information by the Board of Health.
Should you have any questions, please reach out to the Carver Board of Health.
From the Carver, MA Board of Health.
The Town of Carver is at MODERATE RISK for West Nile Virus
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THE BAN FOR ALL ACTIVITIES BETWEEN DUSK AND DAWN HAS BEEN LIFTED
Mosquitoes may continue to be active well into the fall and risk for mosquito-borne illness will continue until the first hard frost in your area. Hard frosts occur when temperatures fall below 28 degrees for several hours.
Do all you can to prevent the bite:
- Avoid outdoor activities Dusk to Dawn
- Wear Insect Repellent when outdoors – even during the day
- Remove Standing water
