[ARCHIVED] Eastern Equine Encephalitis

W Mosquito Spray

At this time, Kalamazoo County has no reported human or animal cases of EEE. The Kalamazoo County Health & Community Services Department is working closely with MDHHS and neighboring county health departments as we monitor EEE activity in our county.  Residents are urged to continue to protect themselves from mosquito bites by:
  • Avoiding being outdoors from dusk to dawn when mosquitoes that carry the EEE virus are most active.
  • Applying insect repellents that contain the active ingredient DEET, or other U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-approved product to exposed skin or clothing, and always follow the manufacturer’s directions for use.
  • Wearing long-sleeved shirts and long pants when outdoors. Apply insect repellent to clothing to help prevent bites.
  • Maintaining window and door screening to help keep mosquitoes outside.
  • Emptying water from mosquito breeding sites around the home, such as buckets, unused kiddie pools, old tires, or similar sites where mosquitoes may lay eggs.
  • Using nets and/or fans over outdoor eating areas. 
For more information about EEE, visit  You can also call the MDHHS hotline with general questions about both COVID-19 and EEE at 888-535-6136. The hotline is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
