West Nile Virus in Beverly

The Beverly Board of Public Health would like to remind you that even though summer is winding down, it's still mosquito season, and West Nile Virus has been found in a mosquito sample in Beverly.

Please take precautions for yourself and your children, particularly around dusk, by wearing clothing that covers your arms and legs and by using insect repellant. You can help prevent mosquitos hatching on your property by draining standing water and being careful to only open windows that are screened in.

See the attached letter for more details.
