Reportable diseases and conditions are considered to have a significant public health impact. Category I diseases should be reported immediately upon suspicion and all others should be reported within 72 hours of diagnosis.
In the event of a public health emergency, we have a 24/7 number for health care professionals. Please call 608-267-3913 and leave a message with the dispatcher, who will contact our on-call staff.
Examples of public health emergencies include cases of meningitis, measles, active or suspected pulmonary TB, hepatitis A (if the client is a food handler, daycare provider/attendee, or health care worker), or Ebola. If you have questions about coronavirus, please contact our main line at 608-266-4821 during normal business hours.
