Communicable disease surveillance and investigation is a vital part of protecting the health and well-being of the citizens of Warren County. These surveillance and investigation activities are largely dependent on prompt disease reporting from many reporting sources. As required by law, physicians, hospitals, labs and healthcare providers must report certain communicable diseases to the Health District. Communicable disease reports received by the Warren County Health District (WCHD) are investigated and documented according to state guidelines. All reports received are kept confidential according to HIPAA requirements.

The communicable disease staff works closely with all reporting sources to obtain complete and accurate information. The Communicable Disease staff with assistance from Environmental Health and the Nursing Division of the WCHD, work to complete investigations of reportable diseases and take appropriate action as needed. Data obtained through these investigations are submitted to the Ohio Department of Health via the Ohio Disease Reporting System. Disease investigation activities provide the staff with an opportunity to educate both individuals and the public on disease processes, identify resources for further information and care, and implement measures necessary to prevent the further spread of disease. Health District communicable disease staff also work with schools, daycares, long-term care facilities and others in an effort to respond to concerns, provide information and promote the health of these specific populations.

The WCHD values the cooperation of physicians, hospitals, labs, healthcare providers and other reporting sources in our efforts to prevent disease and promote good health among the citizens of Warren County.
