Health Department

Communicable Disease encompasses a broad grouping of human illness. The Pennsylvania Reportable Disease List provides a guide for Erie County Department of Health (ECDH) services.

  • Surveillance activities are conducted on all of these diseases/occurrences.
  • On-site clinical services are provided for some diseases, such as Tuberculosis, Sexually Transmitted Disease, HIV, and Vaccine Preventable Disease.
  • Phone investigation and education are provided for foodborne/waterborne illnesses.  Interaction between multiple divisions of ECDH occurs for these reports.
  • Animal bites are reportable to ECDH by providers and the public.  Follow up is designed to prevent human rabies and future hazardous animal encounters.
