Officials confirmed two more human cases of EEE Friday, including a 5-year-old Sudbury girl and a Northborne woman in her 60s – and a state scientist said she expects more cases in the coming weeks.
According to City of Sudbury officials, the child is in critical condition at a regional hospital. All Friday and town outdoor activities in Sudbury were canceled on Friday. Outdoor activities for Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School were also canceled.
A Northbrook health agent confirmed in a statement Friday that the other new case of EEE is a city resident.
