The Health Department has received notice from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) that central Hampden County has experienced a hard frost.
According to NOAA, our area has experienced temperatures that eliminate our risk of exposure to EEE. More information can be found here. https://www.mass.gov/info-details/massachusetts-arbovirus-update#temperature-map-
Because of this new information our town is lifting the night time activity restriction.
Please be advised, there has not been a hard frost throughout the state, so if you are traveling to other areas, please check the map for their current risk level.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Health Department at 413-525-5400.
