Maine CDC Health Advisory

2024 Lyme and Other Tickborne Disease Information

Ticks are already active this year. As the weather continues to get warmer into the spring and summer months, the Maine CDC expects the number of Lyme and other tickborne disease case reports to increase. The purpose of this advisory is to provide healthcare providers with useful information on how to assess and care for patients with possible tickborne disease infections. May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month in Maine and the Maine CDC encourages all Mainers to remember "Little Tick, Big Deal."
