Ticks and Lyme Disease

Good morning and happy Friday! The week’s safety snippet comes from the CDC and involves ticks and Lyme Disease, which is prevalent in our region. Lyme Disease is sometimes called the “great mimicker” because if you do not see the tick that infects you or you do not get the “bullseye” rash, the symptoms of Lyme Disease present like many other common ailments leading to a prolonged time between diagnosis and treatment which can worsen your condition.

On another note, if there is anything you folks want to see or us to research for you in the realm of a “safety snippet” please feel free to reach out to us at any time, we would be glad to help (dean_mcknight@caboces.orgcreate new email; timothy_richardson@caboces.orgcreate new email).
