Potential for Lyme Disease Increases Across PA

Whether maintaining your property or engaging in recreational and leisure activities, Pennsylvania residents in all 67 counties should be vigilant about preventing exposure to deer ticks and Lyme disease, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Health (PaDOH).

Combat exposure to Lyme disease through the use of repellents and protective clothing.  Check regularly while outdoors and at the conclusion of activities to determine if you picked up a tick.

Prevent contracting the disease through the prompt and careful removal of the tick with tweezers, followed by application of rubbing alcohol to the bite area and your hands.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offer details on the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme Disease.

Pictured with me are Sandra Himes and Jackie Marie Gannon. Thank you for your commitment to the success of our students.
