STATEMENT ON EEE VIRUS
FROM CHARLESTOWN YOUTH
CYSA is aware of the threat of the Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) virus and the identification of EEE in towns in the Greater Boston area. While EEE has not been identified in Charlestown, the safety of our players is of the utmost importance.
We want to remind players and parents to be vigilant about practicing personal protective behaviors, particularly those practice at and after dusk, including the application of insect repellent with DEET and wearing sweatpants and long sleeve shirts to cover the skin. We will continue to monitor the situation as needed.
Practices will remain as scheduled but we understand respect parents' decision to have players remain home while the EEE threat exists.
