Rules and Regulations

Commonwealth of Virginia/State Board of Health


Rules and Regulations of the Board of Health - Commonwealth of Virginia

Revised: Effective March 28, 2011

The Regulations for Disease Reporting and Control describe what diseases must be reported to the health department and the methods to use to report.

Cases of disease have been reported to the Virginia health department since the early part of this century. Beginning in 1919, the Code of Virginia has required the State Board of Health to promulgate a list of diseases that must be reported. The enclosed Regulations represent the Board's latest response to this mandate.

If you have any questions, please contact your local health department.#
