#GivingTuesdayNow-Give the Gift of Awareness!

May 5th, Give the Gift of Awareness! #GivingTuesdayNow: is a global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

The COVID-19 pandemic has created increased challenges for everyone this year. With warming weather, more people are spending more time outdoors and unfortunately, ticks are not social distancing.

Many initial tick-borne disease symptoms are flu-like and may not be readily recognized, especially in light of similar symptoms found with COVID-19 infection.  Access to medical care providers experienced with diagnosing Lyme and other tick-borne diseases has always been challenging, and now more than ever in many communities. with warming weather, more people are spending time outdoors, and tick are NOT social distancing. With an estimated 300,000 new cases of Lyme alone expected this year, now is the time to increase awareness and practice prevention!
