Six more mosquito pools test positive for EEE in Cicero Swamp, spraying planned

Six new mosquito pools have tested positive for EEE in the Cicero Swamp, with more spraying on the way.

This time, the spraying will not be aerial, but will be via truck. The health department says it will focus on three neighborhoods near the Cicero Swamp.

Four of the positive tests came from the Taft Road site; the other two came from the Island Road site.

Spraying has not been scheduled yet, but residents will be contacted through the emergency contact system to let them know.

The human EEE patient announced last week is rehabilitating, but is still in the hospital, according to the Onondaga County Health Department.

Officials say the patient has â??made good recoveryâ?? and has an â??upbeat prognosis.â??
