/May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month in Fairfax County

 

The bite of an infected mosquito, tick or other disease carrying insect may result in a life changing illness, such as West Nile virus or Lyme disease. The Disease Carrying Insect Program (DCIP), established in 2003, works to minimize the threat of insect-borne diseases through active surveillance, vector management, and community education activities to help protect county residents.
