Communicable Disease Testing and Treatment

Tracking & Reporting
Communicable diseases are those that are spread by touch, direct contact, or even through the air. It is necessary for CCHD to track these illnesses to prevent the transmission of disease. Some of the diseases investigated and tracked by Prevention Services are chlamydia, Hepatitis A, B, and C, as well as giardia, salmonella, campylobacter, e-coli, strep throat, influenza, lyme disease, shigella, cryptosporidiosis, legionellosis, coccidioidomycosis, rabies, and other communicable diseases. Reportable Diseases are those that healthcare providers are required to report; CCHD is obligated by law to perform follow-up on all reportable diseases and conditions.
