Information for You

People typically get sick with listeriosis by eating food that is contaminated with the bacteria.

Babesiosis is caused by an infection with a parasite called Babesia. It can be transmitted to humans by the bite of an infected black-legged tick, the same tick that transmits Lyme disease and anaplasmosis.

As temperatures in Lake Champlain and other fresh water bodies continue to warm due to climate change, and with more heavy precipitation, conditions will become more favorable for blooms to occur.

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a poisonous gas you cannot see or smell. It is produced when liquid, solid or gas fuel is burned—such as natural gas, propane, oil, charcoal, wood and wood pellets.

The Community Nutrition Network provides individualized nutrition services for children with special health needs who have specific growth, feeding and dietary needs, and their families.

We partner with the Department for Children and Families Child Development Division partner to deliver a comprehensive system of voluntary home visiting in Vermont.
