Mark A. R. Cooper, Director of Health for the Westport Weston Health District announced today that the State of Connecticut has found no additional virus isolates from the most recent mosquito pools collected across the State at the end of October. The State has completed its mosquito trap collections for 2019, with no West Nile or EEE found in Westport or Weston.

With the recent heavy frosts and decline in the mosquito population, the concern about West Nile and EEE disease transmission from mosquitoes has ended for this year.
