Advice For Travellers

The risk of exposure for the general traveller is low. However, the risk increases with exposure to tick bites. Travellers in areas where Lyme disease occurs can reduce their risk of exposure to this disease by avoiding tick bites, whenever possible, especially when hiking or camping in fields and forests. Checking the skin daily for ticks and prompt removal of an attached tick will help to reduce the risk of infection.
