Communicable Diseases

The goal of the Communicable Disease Program is to protect the health of the community through the prevention, early diagnosis, and appropriate management of communicable diseases and conditions. 

Public Health works to prevent and respond to disease outbreaks. Healthcare providers are required by California State Law to report certain diseases to the local public health department.
