Communicable diseases are illnesses caused by specific infectious agents or their toxic products and are transmitted from an infected person, animal or inanimate reservoir to another person. Education, prevention, treatment and the investigation of cases/sources/causes of those illnesses are the responsibilities of Health Department Staff assigned to the Control of Communicable Disease program. Schools, hospitals, clients and the entire community collaborate in the efforts to keep the county  a healthy place in which to live.
