Pennsylvania leads the country for Lyme disease cases with 476,000 reported in 2020. A state Department of Environmental Protection study found that the blacklegged (deer) tick, the carrier of Lyme disease, has been found in all 67 counties.
The program is working to get these signs posted prominently in parks and athletic fields across Pennsylvania. The goal is to empower people to better protect themselves and stay safer while enjoying the outdoors.
