Warmer weather is here and many people are getting out and enjoying the season by walking or hiking. You can decrease your risk of getting Lyme disease with some simple precautions while still enjoying the outdoors:
Cover up - When in wooded or grassy areas, wear shoes, long pants tucked into your socks, a long-sleeved shirt, a hat and gloves. Try to stick to trails and avoid walking through low bushes and long grass. Keep your dog on a leash.
