Lyme Disease - South West

Lyme disease is brought on by a bacterial infection, which is primarily transmitted by biting ticks. It generally produces flu-like symptoms, along with rashes, arthritis, and some neurological problems. Early detection and treatment with antibiotics generally ensures a quick and full recovery. If the infection is allowed to develop, chronic illness may result.

Public Health Units provide information about Lyme disease and monitor its spread.
