Contagious Disease Reporting

A contagious disease is defined as a communicable disease that can spread rapidly from person to person through direct contact (touching a person who has the infection), indirect contact (touching a contaminated object), or droplet contact (inhaling droplets made when a person who has the infection coughs, sneezes, or talks). A few examples of contagious diseases include COVID-19, flu, strep throat, stomach virus, conjunctivitis, and measles. Handwashing is the number one way to prevent the spread of communicable diseases.
