Tick Awareness

Ticks are present in Durham Region's natural environment and the Blacklegged (Deer) Tick has the potential to carry and transmit Lyme Disease.  It is important to be aware so you and your students know how to properly protect yourselves from ticks, check for ticks, and remove and collect ticks.  Please see the Durham Region Health Department's website for more information.
