Public Health Alert - September 27, 2019

Please read this important health alert for Van Buren and Cass County Residents regarding aerial spraying for the recent Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) outbreak.

Important Notice From the Superintendent

September 18, 2019

Dear Marcellus Community School Families,

As you may know, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) recently released a statement regarding Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE). The statement reads:

State residents are being strongly advised by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) to protect themselves from mosquito bites as four additional cases of Eastern Equine Encephalitis  (EEE) have been confirmed in Southwest Michigan - including two that were fatal.

MDHHS is taking further action to protect the public health as the mosquito-borne disease remains a threat that has now resulted in seven confirmed human cases of EEE in Michigan with onset dates in July. The new cases expand the geographic area affected by human EEE cases to include Barry, Cass and Van Buren counties, along with previously identified cases in Kalamazoo and Berrien counties. Two of these additional cases, in Cass and Van Buren counties, were fatal, as was an earlier case in Kalamazoo County.

MDHHS is encouraging local officials in the five Southwest Michigan counties that have been impacted by human EEE cases and St. Joseph, Genesee and Lapeer counties - which have had animal EEE cases - to consider postponing, rescheduling or cancelling outdoor activities occurring at or after dusk, particularly activities that involve children. This would include events such as late evening sports practices or games or outdoor music practices. The MDHHS recommendation is being made out of an abundance of caution to protect the public health and applies until the first hard frost of the year.

To see the full statement, visit VanBuren Cass website at https://vbcassdhd.orq/

Marcellus Community Schools will continue to monitor this situation. We ask that parents remain attentive to district and building level communication as we continue to assess the precautionary needs moving forward. For today, band practice will be moved to an earlier 5:30 p.m. start time. Please watch for additional communication from your child's respective school, director or coach for specific times and any schedule changes. Currently, the district is working with other schools districts to set earlier game and event start times.

Please also know that the district will have mosquito repellent, containing the active ingredient DEET, for student use at any outdoor events. Spectators are strongly encouraged to use their own repellent as advised by MDHHS.

For health related questions, contact the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) at 1-800-648-6942.


Nanette Pauley, Superintendent
