The Hampton & Peninsula Health Districts' Communicable Disease Departments are responsible for district disease surveillance, investigation and prevention and control of diseases especially those specifically outlined in the Regulations for Disease Reporting and Control. Our staff consists of trained physicians, nurses and epidemiologists.
This department receives reports of communicable diseases from local physicians, hospitals, clinics and laboratories. These reports are investigated to prevent and contain the spread of diseases and monitor trends.
An up-to-date list of reportable diseases can be found here.
