Subject: For Opt Out - Please Complete Survey Link

Thank you for contacting the Michigan Department of Health and Human
Services (MDHHS). Due to the volume of responses, after noon on
October 1st all new requests to opt-out of mosquito spraying
activities for EEE must be made by completing the survey at this link:

If you are receiving this message it means we have not recorded your
address and the survey link above must be used to request an opt-out.
Only requests completed from the link above which contain the full
address of the property and are received at least 48 hours in advance
of planned spraying activities can be added to the opt-out list. If
you are unable to use the website survey link, please call the MDHHS
EEE phone number at: 517-335-8165 during the hours of 8AM-8PM.

Note: when your property is excluded, an additional barrier of 1,000
square feet around your property will also be excluded from spraying.
Excluding your property can affect the ability of others to protect
themselves against mosquito-borne illnesses near your property.

For additional information about Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) or
mosquito spraying treatment, please visit:
