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 have been sent for testing.  We are still waiting for the results of these two horses. 


The NYSDOH currently have Wayne Gull and Dr. JoAnn Oliver in the Town of Rose setting mosquito traps to capture pools of mosquitoes for testing.  In a meeting with Chairman Hoffman, Jim Marquette and Kenan Baldridge, it has been decided if any other horses on this farm tests positive with EEE (outside of the 3 that already being tested) or another horse on a nearby farm, spraying for mosquitoes may occur in this area.


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.
