Diseases & Reporting

Information on Diseases and Conditions

Infectious Diseases in Child Care Settings and Schools
Infectious Diseases in Childcare Settings and Schools is a comprehensive manual on infectious diseases developed by Hennepin County. It informs parents and guardians, caregivers, childcare providers, administrators, and school health staff about specific infectious disease problems they may encounter in the childcare setting or in schools. The manual is maintained online, which allows for more frequent updates to ensure the most current information available.

Disease Reporting
By law, certain diseases that can affect the public’s health must be reported to public health agencies from healthcare providers and laboratories in order to keep the disease from spreading.
