Communicable Disease Control

Recognizing our responsibility to protect the health of the community from risk of infectious diseases, a tracking, monitoring and prevention control program is used.

Consultation, investigation and control of communicable diseases involves daily data collection from selected sites in the county, investigation of all reported diseases for source of infection, and contacts are located and tested if necessary.

Contacts of tuberculosis patients are screened for the disease at no charge.

Screening for certain sexually transmitted infections is available at no charge.

Treatment for certain lab diagnosed sexually transmitted infections can be provided.
