Communicable Disease Reporting
To contact the Health Department for reports that require immediate telephone reporting, please call 873-7868, Monday through Friday during business hours (8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M., closed from 12:00-1:00). Please contact the Inyo County Sheriff's Dispatch at 878-0383 and ask for the Health Department call out list to obtain Public Health staff contact information during non-business hours.
Prompt reporting of any reportable communicable disease assures our ability to alert possible contacts and prevent further spread of the infection. Confirmatory lab testing is a timely process. If you wait for the hospital lab to report to the Health Department, we could be well beyond the prophylaxis window. If you are suspecting a specific disease, please consider contacting the Health Department so we may anticipate the appropriate public health investigation. It is especially important to alert the Health Department if you are seeing multiple clients presenting with similar symptoms within a defined period of time, indicating a potential clustering of cases.
