COMMUNICABLE DISEASE PROGRAM

The purpose of the Communicable Disease Program at the Pulaski County Health Center is to prevent a county outbreak of a contagious disease.

Disease surveillance reports are collected from local schools and physicians weekly. Certain communicable diseases are mandated by law to be reported to the health department in a timely manner. Once those reports are received by the health department, which could include suspected or confirmed communicable diseases, they are investigated. Individuals are then instructed as necessary with appropriate follow-up and treatment given.


Examples of communicable diseases include, but are not limited to:

  • Tuberculosis
  • Hepatitis A, B, and C
  • Rabies
  • Listeriosis
  • Meningococcal Diseases
  • Salmonella
  • West Nile Virus
  • Pertussis
  • Other vaccine-preventable diseases
