Communicable Diseases

The Public Health Division of the El Dorado County Health and Human Services Agency monitors and controls communicable diseases. This is one of the major responsibilities of Public Health.

Our agency also works with the California Department of Public Health and federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on communicable disease issues. All doctors and other healthcare providers in El Dorado County are required by law to notify Public Health of reportable, confirmed or suspect cases of communicable disease.
