Health Department Update

Date:  September 27, 2019

Due to the EEE Virus confirmed in Kent County, West Catholic will limit all outdoor activities between dusk and dawn as a precautionary measure until a hard frost kills the mosquito population.

Please watch for the rescheduling of future post-dusk competitions.

For more information on EEE and additional resources, please visit the Kent County Health Department website.

“The Michigan Department Health and Human Services (MDHHS) notified the Kent County Health Department (KCHD) this morning a deer in Kent County was found to have Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) during a necropsy (autopsy). The KCHD is urging residents to take steps to protect themselves from EEE and West Nile Virus (WNV).

The MDHHS is encouraging local officials in Kent County to consider postponing, rescheduling or canceling outdoor activities occurring at or after dusk, particularly activities that involve children. This would include events such as late evening outdoor sports practices, games or music practices. The MDHHS recommendation is being made out of an abundance of caution to protect the public health and applies until the first hard frost of the year.”
