May 21-27 is Healthy and Safe Swimming Week!

The week before Memorial Day, May 21–27, 2018, marks the fourteenth annual Healthy and Safe Swimming Week. Nationwide, communities will be collaborating and engaging in discussion about how to maximize the health benefits of water-based physical activity while minimizing the risk of recreational water–associated illness and injury.

The Virginia Department of Health (VDH) urges beachgoers and those using and maintaining swimming pools, spas, and water parks to focus on simple steps that can be taken to help ensure a healthy and safe swimming experience for everyone.

May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month!

Before gardening, camping, hiking, or just playing outdoors, make preventing tick bites part of your plans.

Lyme disease is spread by the bite of an infected tick. In the United States, an estimated 300,000 infections occur each year. If you camp, hike, work, or play in wooded or grassy places, you could be bitten by an infected tick.

You and your family can prevent tick bites and reduce your risk of Lyme disease!

Learn more about preventing Lyme disease from the Virginia Department of Health or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
