Disease Reporting for Medical Providers

How Do I Report?

The preferred method for reporting is the Confidential Morbidity Report Portal (Epi-1).  You can access the portal using the button below.

Alternative Reporting Methods

Providers can also use the Division of Disease Prevention confidential fax lines at:

    • (804) 864-8052 (Attn: Denise Artis; for HIV)
    • (804) 864-7970 (Attn: CRU; for STIs)

Reports can also be mailed to the Division of Disease Prevention.  If reports are mailed, they must be double enveloped with the inner envelope marked CONFIDENTIAL.  Mailed reports can be sent to:

Virginia Department of Health
Central Registry Unit
109 Governor Street, 2nd Floor
Richmond, VA 23219

Who is Required to Report?

Health care practitioners, health care facilities, medical laboratories, and agencies with contractual agreements with VDH.  This includes community-based organizations.  Unless previously reported, every licensed care provider who provides care to any patient who has, is suspected of having, or has died from a reportable disease is required to report.

The Regulations for Disease Reporting and Control describe what disease must be reported to VDH and the methods to use to report.

Information on this page is specific to the Division of Disease Prevention and does not replace the regulations.  The Virginia Reportable Disease List provides details on ALL reportable conditions.  You can find more resources on other reportable conditions from the Division of Surveillance and Investigation.
