The St. Clair County Health Department has completed further analysis on the blood lead screening results collected on June 26, 2018, at Harrison Center in Port Huron. Out of the 701 individuals screened up to 24 were elevated screenings. Dr. Annette Mercatante, Medical Health Officer stated, “An elevated screening result does not necessarily mean that you have a high blood lead level. With an elevated screening result, the next step is to promptly get a confirmatory venous blood test. Without this, accurate lead levels are not known and case management cannot be provided. Furthermore, they are encouraging that all parents/caregivers follow the current lead testing recommendations and make sure any child under the age of 6 get their blood lead levels tested.”  For more information on the screening visit scchealth.co
