In 2016, Massachusetts transitioned to a surveillance method that relies primarily on laboratory reports. This method does not currently align with the national surveillance case definition as set by the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE). Therefore, information on most Lyme disease cases occurring in Massachusetts is not sent to CDC. Please contact the MA Department of Public Health for case numbers.
