Communicable Disease Follow-Up

The Communicable Disease Control Program provides ongoing surveillance and control of significant infectious diseases such as meningitis , pertussis (whooping cough), salmonella, tuberculosis, e-coli and hepatitis.  Our staff works with medical providers, hospitals and laboratories to:

  • Detect and report cases of significant infectious disease.
  • Investigate the circumstances of each case.
  • Provide pertinent information to families and communities.
  • Recommend and implement measures to control the spread of disease.
  • Provide infection-control training to community agencies and organizations.

The population of Henry County is highly mobile, which increases the probability and the spread of communicable diseases in our communities.  To report a communicable disease, please call 319.385.0779.
