Health Department

We will provide guidance to health care personnel and the community at large in the area of infectious disease surveillance, investigations, and interventions utilizing public health principles and epidemiological methodologies.

Public health surveillance includes the ability to detect and respond to infectious disease outbreaks, bio-terrorism events, and other public health threats and emergencies. This includes influenza as well as emerging infectious diseases such as Ebola, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS), chikungunya, dengue, and zika.
