Even though temperatures are still cool, ticks are already active. If you’re spending time outdoors while physical distancing, make sure to protect yourself from tick bites:
✅ Wear light-coloured, long sleeve shirt and pants
✅ Tuck your shirt in and pull your socks over your pants
✅ Apply insect repellent containing DEET
✅ Do a tick check on yourself, children and pets
✅ If a tick is attached, remove it immediately with tweezers
