MCRHC performs investigations of reportable communicable disease in our jurisdiction to ensure control and prevention of ongoing disease transmission for our residents.

Communicable Diseases, also known as infectious diseases, are illnesses that can result from a bacteria or disease causing pathogen making a presence in a human or animal. They can be transmitted through air, direct contact between people, or contaminated surfaces or objects.  Communicable diseases can be preventable through vaccines and healthy habits such as handwashing.  Cases are identified as "not a case" to "possible" to "probable" to "confirmed" determined by factors such as lab criteria, clinical case definition and timeframe.

To report a Communicable Disease 24 hours 7 days a week, contact the MCRHC at 732 493-9520.
