KALAMAZOO, MI – On the morning of September 27, 2019, Kalamazoo County Health & Community Services Department (HCS), along with thirteen other county health departments, endorsed the strong recommendation from Michigan Department of Health & Human Services (MDHHS) to perform aerial spraying of insecticide to reduce adult mosquito populations given the ongoing risk of Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) infection in Kalamazoo County.
