BOSTON (AP) — State health officials have confirmed a case of mosquito-borne Eastern equine encephalitis in a horse in Tyngsborough, the third case in a horse this year.
The health department said Wednesday it is raising the mosquito threat level to ‘‘critical’’ in the north central Massachusetts community. Nearby Chelmsford, Dracut, Dunstable, Groton, Lowell, and Westford have been raised to ‘‘moderate’’ risk.
Ha! And you thought getting rid of all the strippers was the ticket to a disease free Tyngsboro. Well, the joke is on you. Call me nostalgic, but I liked Tyngsboro a lot better when it was all about boobs and roller skating. Ever since they turned the place over to new construction and horse hunting mosquitos, it hasn’t been the same.
