Sharon residents should consider heading indoors -- specifically the Sharon Town Offices -- with the outdoors season in full swing now.
In the foyer, the Sharon Health Department has provided information about preventing disease spread by ticks, health board member Andrew Stead noted Monday night.
Children should "check themselves for fully developed freckles," Stead said.
One Massachusetts Department of Public Health pamphlet defines dog and deer ticks, the diseases they can spread, and suggests prevention options.
A "tick check a day" flyer based on information from the Westwood Board of Health says where to check on the body for tick bites, to prevent Lyme disease.
