Elevated Lead Levels Follow-up

Wyandot County Public Health assists with follow-up related to reports of elevated lead levels in children age 9 months through 6 years of age. Education regarding lead poisoning prevention is a vital component of our lead prevention program.

Please note: Wyandot County Public Health does not offer lead testing at this time. 

Your child may be at risk for lead poisoning. If any of the follow is true, please contact a primary care provider about lead testing:

  • Live in or regularly visit a house built before 1950?
  • Live in or visit a house that has peeling, chipping, dusting, or chalking paint?
  • Live in or visit a house built before 1978 with recent, ongoing or planned renovation/remodeling?
  • Have a sibling or playmate that has or did have lead poisoning?
  • Frequently come in contact with an adult who has a hobby or works with lead? Examples are construction, welding, pottery, painting and casting ammunition.
