Washtenaw County Public Health
For the first time, Washtenaw County Public Health has evidence that a Washtenaw resident was likely infected with Lyme disease without leaving the county. Cases of Lyme disease occur annually among Washtenaw residents; until now, local cases have been related to travel to west Michigan or other states where infested tick populations are present.
If you need a place to cool off from the heat during business hours, many public libraries and public buildings, including the County Human Services Building at 555 Towner St. Ypsilanti offer it.
Parents or guardians opting out of the vaccinations required for their child or children to attend childcare or school, must request a waiver from their local public health department. To schedule an appointment in Washtenaw County, please call 734-544-6700.
