Public Health Nurses complete communicable disease investigations on reportable communicable disease for St. Joseph County residents in an effort to control and prevent further transmission.

Reporting communicable diseases to the Health Department is mandated by Indiana Code 410 IAC. A list of reportable diseases (revised 12/2015) can be found here.

Health care providers should print and complete the communicable disease report and fax the completed form to Nursing at 574-245-6581.
