Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) is rare but is very serious due to the severity of symptoms.  Approximately 50% of people who contract the virus die from it and those who survive often suffer permanent neurological problems.

 

Use EPA approved insect repellents (list can be found here: https://www.epa.gov/insect-repellents/find-repellent-right-you)

Avoid outdoor activities around dusk and dawn

Wear loose-fitting clothing that will cover exposed skin (thin and tight clothing such as leggings and athletic shirts will not provide full protection)
