Health Dept. collecting ticks

The LaSalle County Health Dept. is asking for help in collecting ticks.

Health Educator Jenny Barrie says anyone can drop by the Health Dept. on Etna Road in Ottawa and pick up a free collection kit.

The captured ticks will be sent off for testing.
The data is used to determine the risk of disease in the county and across the state.

Tick collection can happen over a two week period now through December.
