Province Prepares For Tick Season & Lyme Disease

Tick season will soon be upon us as deer and wood ticks hatch and spring into action. The province's health minister says more is known today about Lyme disease than 10 or 20 years ago. Leo Glavine says there are ways of preventing getting bitten by a tick and in some cases, the resulting occurance of Lyme Disease.

Glavine says people should not be afraid to get out and enjoy the outdoors. More information about ticks, Lyme Disease and ways of preventing it are available at the Nova Scotia Department of Health's website.
