    West Nile Virus

    West Nile Virus was identified in Connecticut in 2000. This virus is caused by mosquitoes. The elderly and those with compromised immune systems are most at risk. You can reduce your risk of being infected with WNV by using insect repellent and wearing protective clothing to prevent mosquito bites. Learn more about West Nile Virus (Fact Sheet from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).


    Zika Virus

    Zika virus is the newest emerging infectious disease caused by mosquitoes in the U.S. Those infected with Zika infections have relatively mild illnesses that are rarely fatal. An increase in birth defects among infants born to women infected during pregnancy is associated with the virus, as well as other severe fatal brain defects.

    Fact Sheet from the Connecticut Department of Public Health

    Having a Tick Tested for Lyme Disease: The Health Department accepts ticks at our office, which we send for testing to the State of Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station. They will test the tick to see if it carries the spirochete that causes Lyme Disease. Please note: The CT Agricultural Experiment Station only tests engorged deer ticks. 

    Ticks should be brought in alive (if possible) in a zip lock bag or sealed containers (not in Vaseline, oil or other substances) to the Health Department Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm.
