Local health officials will be traveling around town this summer teaching residents how to protect themselves from diseases spread by mosquitoes and ticks. Starting this week, Health Division representatives will be leading educational presentations about West Nile virus and Eastern equine encephalitis, which can be spread by mosquitoes, and Lyme disease, which is spread by deer ticks. The first presentation will be held Thursday at 2 p.m. in the Parker Room at Town Hall, with the next session slated for 2:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Countryside Village housing area off Woburn Street, and five subsequent talks are slated through Sept. 26. For more information, including a complete schedule, visit the News & Events page on the town’s website, www.lexingtonma.gov.
