A ban has been put in place for all evening outdoor events after West Nile Virus has been found in Carver.

Town Officials say the ban will impact all outdoor activities that take place between dusk and dawn until the first hard frost.

Mosquitoes may continue to be active well into the fall, and risk for mosquito-borne illness will continue until the first hard frost, which occurs when temperatures fall below 28 degrees for several hours.

In addition to avoiding outdoor activities during those hours residents are also being advised to wear insect repellent when outdoors, even during the day, and to remove any standing water.
