Lyme disease

All cases of Lyme disease, whether clinically diagnosed or laboratory confirmed, are reportable to local public health under the Health Protection and Promotion Act. Note: This includes individuals who have been clinically diagnosed with Lyme disease in the absence of serology. Public Health is mandated to collect information on clinical signs and symptoms (such as diameter of any erythema migrans), as well as information on tick exposure.
