Important: Ticks found at Westpark

Sharon Shares:

I was made aware that one of our athletes came home with ticks after practice. I have left a message with Environmental Health at Niagara Region.

This link provides information from the NR.

We strongly recommend that kids do not sit in the grass. Yuk!!

If you find a tick on the body, remove with tweezers. Keep the tick in a small container and take it to the Niagara Region Health Department, where it will be identified and tested if necessary.

Wash the bite site with soap and water.
