Communicable Disease

´╗┐Welcome to the Communicable Disease Program in Island County, Washington
 
This program works closely with healthcare providers to identify incidence of communicable disease in our county.  Public health professionals seek to ensure that the individual, family, and community is protected against further exposure and to provide education and information about possible exposures.  Communicable disease staff engage in surveillance and investigation of notifiable communicable diseases including prevention, control, and education activities. Services include ensuring proper treatment for affected individuals and contacting individuals potentially exposed to communicable diseases. There are 61 notifiable conditions. Examples include animal bites, specific sexually transmitted diseases, tuberculosis, whooping cough, measles, mumps, and hepatitis.   
 
Program responsibilities include the following:
  • To reduce the impact of communicable disease on our communities
