Communicable Disease Reporting


  

A communicable disease is an illness that can be transmitted from person to person. Examples of communicable diseases include tuberculosis, E. coli O157:H7, chickenpox, pertussis (whooping cough), measles and mumps.

Reporting of communicable diseases is required by Wisconsin State Statute 252.05 and Wisconsin Administrative Code HFS 145. School and daycare personnel are required to report suspicion of communicable diseases to the local health department.
