The following is a statement from Alex Palluzzi, Jr., Director of the
Branford Parks and Recreation Department:
Hi All,
Beginning This Evening, Friday, September 27, through next week, and until further notice, Branford's Parks & Recreation is suspending all outside activities beginning at 5:30 p.m., to all users and youth sports groups,
including, but not limited to, All Fields, Parks, & Athletic Facilities, including Playgrounds, throughout the Town Of Branford.
This is all centered around the EEE crisis in the Northeast.
We are sorry for the inconvenience, but the safety of our
community remains paramount.

EEE naturally occurs in birds living in freshwater swamps that support large mosquito populations. Insects feed on those animals, become infected and later transmit the virus to susceptible human hosts during subsequent blood meals.

Bill horn and other so called environmentalist are to blame with their quasi efforts to play got to the animal kingdom. Pio pio
