 A communicable disease is an illness that can be transmitted from person to person.  Reporting of communicable diseases is required by Wisconsin State Statute 252.05 and Wisconsin Administrative Code DHS 145. Individuals required to report communicable diseases include physicians, nurses, laboratory personnel, school and daycare personnel, and any others with knowledge of disease.
