Please use the information below to ensure that the correct information is reported in the correct timeframe.

How do you report?

Disease reporting via phone is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Calls made after-hours or during weekends and holidays will be sent to a confidential voicemail system. This reporting line also allows for emergency calls to be forwarded to an on-call staff member. All messages will receive a prompt response.

All disease reports sent to Davis County Health Department are accessible only to certain staff to ensure patient confidentiality.

Who has to report?

Anyone with knowledge of a reportable disease is required to report to public health. However, most reports will come from healthcare providers, laboratories, healthcare facilities, schools, and childcare programs.
