Lyme Disease is the most prevalent infectious disease in Massachusetts and is now considered to be a public health crisis. In addition to Lyme, Deer ticks can carry the pathogens which cause Babesiosis, Anaplasmosis, Relapsing Fever, and Powassan virus, all of which can be very serious and are on the increase. The Westford Health Department often receives confirmed cases of tick-borne diseases in residents.

A Three-point protection plan will be presented: Protect Yourself, Protect Your Yard and Protect your Pet. Tick-Borne Diseases are preventable.
