We investigate reportable diseases in our region. Reportable diseases are illnesses that are considered to be of public health importance and must be reported by health care providers and laboratories to health departments and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. To notify the Health Department about a reportable disease, call 802-863-7240 or 800-640-4374 (VT only). Someone is available to receive your report 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. See more information about infectious diseases and prevention.
If you are diagnosed with a reportable disease, a public health nurse may call you or visit you to discuss your illness, help you take your medications, interview you about how you may have gotten sick and help prevent your friends and family from also getting sick.
