Lyme Disease & Tick Removal

Because we live in the Northeast ticks are a constant concern, especially at this time of the year.  It is good practice to check your children for ticks every night before bed, particularly if they have been playing outside or walking through grassy or wooded areas.

Please visit cdc.gov/lyme for up-to-date information on preventing tick bites, tick removal, and signs and symptoms of Lyme disease.
