Lyme Disease Identified in Madison County Resident

Madison County Public Health has confirmed a case of Lyme disease in a county resident.  Lyme disease is a bacterial disease transmitted to people from the bite of an infected deer tick.  Symptoms can include fever, headache, nausea, vomiting, joint pain, muscle aches, fatigue, or a rash.  While not always present, a “bullseye” shaped rash is often seen at the site of the tick bite.  Lyme disease is not transmitted from one person to another by coughing, sneezing, or casual contact like shaking hands.  Please click here to read our public information release.  You can also click here to view a tick identification card.
