How reliable are the tests you can buy at the hardware store?
If a lead screening kit shows a high level of lead in a home, are there requirements for remediation, and if so, what would those costs involve?
Please go to website to request a FREE kit
Is the concern for pregnant woman that they can pass the lead to their unborn baby? If the mother has been exposed is there anything they can do?
What is the timeframe for this study? (specifically how long the test kits would be available for distribution?)
Wow! That's great to know about the diet. Thank you
To answer your question Lauren, our time frame is end of FY 2022
Home inspections and assessments will begin sometime in July but screening kits are available now.
@firstname.lastname@example.org In terms of adults, we need to be exposed of very high levels of lead before it will seriously affect us. We often see this in people working in industrial factories or metal working careers. Adults who have exposure to lead are more of a risk to children if they come home in the clothes that they were exposed to and then interact with their children. We can prevent this exposure by removing the clothes when we get home and washing the clothes in a separate laundry cycle.

@Maggie Gibney most insurance providers will test children for lead for free. If not, the Health department offers a waiver for free lead testing at the Health Department.
Emily, do you know what the community need is for Pre-K? I recently read SB Schools is going to begin offering in a few new schools
Yes, there is a lot of growth happening with Pre-K locally to build capacity/ expand seats. There is still a need for preschool/ Pre-K options, but a higher need for Infant/ toddler care. I'll share a few resources to look at the latest data.
