Communicable & Infectious Disease
November 2018 - Practicing Food Safety this Holiday Season
June 2018 - Ticks
- Montana ticks can carry the organisms that cause Rocky Mountain spotted fever, tickborne relapsing fever, tularemia, and Colorado tick fever; however, Lyme disease and other tickborne diseases have not been found in Montana ticks.
- Many tickborne diseases have similar signs and symptoms which can be severe if left untreated.
- Prevent tick bites by limiting exposure to brushy and wooded areas; using EPA registered insect repellents; and by completing a tick check of clothing and your body after being outdoors
