Don’t have many observations at this point save to deliver one little piece of advice – wear good gloves when gardening. A little puncture can wreak havoc.
One other observation – the likelihood of contracting this disease is about the same as getting struck by lightning or winning the lottery. Either is preferable.

Hope all in this community are well!
