4-H Open House October 8, 2014


IMPORTANT UPDATE:

September 8, 2014  - WCPH was notified by the Arbovirus Laboratory of the NYSDOH that a horse tested positive for Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) in the Town of Rose.  This horse was initially sent to NYSDOH by WCPH for rabies testing, which was negative.  Two other horses from the same farm have also presented with the signs & symptoms of EEE and have either died or been euthanized and were sent for testing. 

The NYSDOH sent Wayne Gull and Dr. JoAnn Oliver in the Town of Rose to set mosquito traps to capture pools of mosquitoes for testing. 

WCPH staff have gone door to door in the near vicinity of the effected farm to notify residents and to educate them on how to protect themselves.
