The Communicable Disease Reporting Program monitors the occurrence of contagious illnesses within Montgomery County. Our team gathers reports of diseases in the community, interviews people with disease, and conducts follow-up investigations to determine the source of infection.
The Communicable Disease staff makes recommendations for the treatment of cases and prophylaxis of contacts, educates the public about disease transmission, and provides timely and accurate information to the community to avert outbreaks.
The Communicable Disease staff works closely with hospitals, physician offices, urgent cares, schools and daycares in Montgomery County to help prevent and control the spread of diseases and protect the health of our community.
All reportable diseases should be reported to the Communicable Disease Reporting Nurse by telephone, mail or fax during normal business hours.
