PA Lyme's Lyme Disease Prevention Tip Series

Lyme Disease prevention is more important than ever during this time. COVID-19 closures have motivated people to spend more time outdoors, in their yards, and on hikes. Ticks are out in full force.

Unfortunately, ticks don't believe in social distancing.

PA Lyme has launched a new awareness campaign to bring attention to Lyme Disease Awareness Month. Their virtual video presentations share prevention tips to keep you and your loved ones safe.

More tips are available on PA Lyme's facebook, twitter, and through the #Dare2BTickAware program, available in exchange for a small donation.
