Potential for Lyme Disease Increases Across PA
Whether maintaining your property or engaging in recreational and leisure activities, Pennsylvania residents in
all 67 counties should be vigilant about preventing exposure to deer ticks
and Lyme disease, according to the
Pennsylvania Department of Health (PaDOH).
Combat exposure to
Lyme disease through the use of repellents and protective clothing. Check
regularly while outdoors and at the conclusion of activities to determine if you picked up a tick.
Prevent contracting the disease through the prompt and careful
removal of the tick with tweezers, followed by application of rubbing
alcohol to the bite area and your hands. The Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention offer details on the
treatment of Lyme Disease.

Bartonsville. Area health care leaders, dignitaries, and residents
were present in support. Quality healthcare and ease of access is of
utmost importance to our communities.

I recently had the opportunity to tour the
Lehigh Career & Technical Institute. The work LCTI does is
invaluable in training our next generation of professionals in
skills and technical education. Pictured with me are Sandra Himes
and Jackie Marie Gannon. Thank you for your commitment to the
success of our students.
