    A horse from Sanbornton has been identified with the Eastern Equine Encephalitis virus infection, after officials earlier this week confirmed the second person in the state died from the virus.

    This is the second finding of EEE in a horse this year; a mule was identified with EEE in September.

    Eighteen mosquito batches have tested positive for EEE.

    The arboviral risk level for the town on Sanbornton will increase from low to high.

    The surrounding towns of Laconia, Belmont, and Tilton will increase from low to moderate, and the towns of New Hampton, Franklin, Hill, and Meredith will increase from no data/baseline to moderate risk.
