Communicable Disease

Communicable Disease Program.

Disease Investigation and prevention of outbreaks are amount the highest priority of the Massillon City Health Department due the fact it is an important part of protecting the public’s health. Our goal is to prevent and reduce transmission of all communicable disease through a system of surveillance, control, and education. Certain diseases, called reportable communicable diseases are required by law to be reported to the local health department. Ohio’s Communicable Disease Reporting Requirements

By law physicians, hospitals, labs and healthcare providers must report certain communicable diseases to the health department.  Once a report is received the public health nurse contacts the primary care provider and /or patient in an attempt to determine how the disease was contracted and to teach how to prevent further spread of the disease. Nursing staff also work with schools, daycares, long-term care facilities and others in an effort to respond to concerns, provide information and promote the health of these specific populations. All reports received are kept confidential according to HIPAA requirements
