NATICK – All Town of Natick athletic fields, as well as the Sassamon Golf Course, will close at 6 p.m. until further notice.
This is due to the threat of EEE.
The virus that causes EEE is spread through the bite of an infected mosquito.
In Massachusetts, the virus is most often identified in mosquitoes found in and around freshwater, hardwood swamps.
More information about different types of mosquitoes that can spread the virus can be found on the MDPH website at www.mass.gov/dph/mosquito.
