In the case of a bite, residents are encouraged to use tick keys to remove the insect. Each City Councillor has received tick key removal kits from OPH for distribution to residents in their respective communities. Please note that my office is currently out of tick key removal kits and is working with OPH to receive more.
Once my office receives another shipment of the kits I will be sure to notify residents in my weekly newsletter. In the meantime, I would encourage residents to visit a local hunting/outdoor and or pet store to inquire about any tick key removal kits they might have available.
