What you should know about West Nile Virus

West Nile Virus was identified in Connecticut in 2000. This virus is caused by mosquitoes. The elderly and those with compromised immune systems are most at risk. You can reduce your risk of being infected with WNV by using insect repellent and wearing protective clothing to prevent mosquito bites. Learn more about West Nile Virus (Fact Sheet from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).

Tick Encounter Resource Center Tick Identification Chart 

Having a Tick Tested for Lyme Disease: The Health Department accepts ticks at our office, which we send for testing to the State of Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station. They will test the tick to see if it carries the spirochetes that cause Lyme Disease, Anaplasmosis, and Babesiosis. Please note: The CT Agricultural Experiment Station only tests engorged deer ticks. 

Ticks should be brought in alive (if possible) in a zip lock bag or sealed containers (not in Vaseline, oil or other substances) to the Health Department Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm.  There is a $3.00 fee.
