Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) Notice
Ottawa County does not have a human or animal case of Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE), so no recommendation to postpone, reschedule or cancel outdoor activities is in effect at this time. However, out of an abundance of caution, Ottawa County residents or organizations may consider postponing, rescheduling or canceling outdoor activities should they feel it is necessary. At this time, Ottawa County is not participating in mosquito spraying for EEE because there have been no human or animal EEE cases reported in Ottawa County. As information becomes available, it will be shared to keep the public informed. Read More
The best way to prevent EEE is to avoid bites from mosquitos:
- Avoid being outdoors from dusk to dawn.
- Apply insect repellents that contain the active ingredient DEET.
- Wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants when outdoors.
- Maintain window and door screening to help keep mosquitoes outside.
- Empty water from mosquito breeding sites around the home.
- Use nets and/or fans over outdoor eating areas.
