Health Unit will no longer accept submissions of ticks for analysis

- Advertisement -

The Health Unit is no longer accepting submissions of ticks at their sites. Analysis on tick presence has been done for the past several years but now the Health Unit wants to concentrate on where ticks are emerging through a new surveillance plan. The change in how surveillance is done will not affect clinical care. Remember if a tick is attached for longer than 24 hours, and removed within the past 72 hours then it is important to contact a health care provider.
