Lead exposure is a primary concern for children under the age of 6 (72 months) and pregnant women. If lead-based paint hazards are found in your unit, these groups should be tested to determine if they have elevated blood lead levels.
If a child under the age of 6 has a confirmed blood lead level of 5 g/dL or greater, a public health nurse will manage the case pursuant to N.J.A.C. 8:51-2.4.
For more information regarding lead exposure, please visit the CDC's website.
