COLUMBUS

Ohio health officials are urging people to be more aware of the threat of tick-carried Lyme disease.

The Columbus Dispatch reported that federal funding cuts resulted in an end to a statewide program on tick and mosquito surveillance. But the Ohio Department of Health says it will help guide local health departments on surveillance efforts.

The state department has been reaching out to the public in a variety of ways, including at the Ohio State Fair, through legislators, and with education of health care workers, spokeswoman Tessie Pollock said.
