RIDOH offers new Lyme disease prevention materials, recommends procedures to prevent tick-borne diseases
Between 2016 and 2017, Rhode Island saw a 22% increase in the number of cases of Lyme disease reported by healthcare providers to the Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) (927 cases in 2016, versus 1,132 cases in 2017). Rhode Island has the fourth highest rate of Lyme disease in the nation. In May, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a report stating that the number of cases of diseases that are transmitted by ticks, mosquitoes, and other insects more than tripled between 2004 and 2016 (27,388 cases in 2004, versus 96,075 cases in 2016).
To help prevent tick-borne disease, RIDOH has launched its Tick Free Rhode Island campaign with three simple calls to action: Repel. Check. Remove. This campaign features three new animated Tick Free Rhode Island videos. The videos, which we encourage you to share, show how to repel both ticks and mosquitoes, how to check for ticks, and how to properly remove a tick from the skin.
Protect Your Family from Illness This Summer (a concise two-page fact sheet with prevention tips for tick- and mosquito-borne diseases and rabies.) Also available in Spanish and Portuguese. We ask you to help distribute this fact sheet electronically to parents or you may request hard copies. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and RIDOH have also developed the materials listed below to help communicate information to prevent the spread of tick-borne diseases, such as Lyme Disease, Babesiosis, and Anaplasma, which we encourage you to share:
We also offer materials on mosquito-borne diseases, including tips on controlling mosquito breeding grounds and preventing mosquito bites. For more information, visit http://health.ri.gov/ticks and health.ri.gov/mosquito.
Thank you for helping to keep Rhode Islanders safe from tick and mosquito-borne diseases.
