COMMUNICABLE DISEASE PROGRAM (CD)
Protecting the community from communicable diseases requires prompt reporting, assessment and prevention education. Mid-Michigan District Health Department's Public Health Nurses and Epidemiologist work together to investigate reported communicable disease cases. They then present their findings to the Medical Director who recommends the appropriate prevention and follow-up measures to prevent the spread of the disease in the community. This team of professionals is very effective in controlling the spread of communicable diseases in the community.

Schools are required to report any “unusual occurrence or outbreak” of any disease or infection to the local health department.
