The Ridgefield Health Department is experiencing a 7 business day turnaround time at this time. We appreciate your understanding and patience.
Individuals who have been bitten are encouraged to contact their physician and NOT to wait for the results before consulting a physician. The tick testing is helpful information but cannot be used as a diagnostic tool. It is important to record the date of the bite, monitor the symptoms, and seek the advice of your personal physician as soon as possible.
