Welcome to the Florida Department of Health in Volusia County, Office of Epidemiology and Communicable Disease Control.

Our primary responsibility is to monitor communicable diseases listed in Chapter 64D-3 of the Florida Administrative Code and investigate outbreaks. Our office consists of a group of highly qualified health personnel who are trained to conduct investigations and surveillance of communicable diseases.

Office of Epidemiology and Communicable Disease Control staff members are engaged in a wide array of activities, including:

  • Surveillance and reporting of communicable diseases and conditions.
  • Field investigation of case and outbreak situations.
  • Analysis and distribution of public health data via publications, presentations and reports.
  • Hepatitis A, B, and C counseling and education
  • Lead poisoning prevention services, such as screening, surveillance and case management.
  • Perinatal Hepatitis B screening, surveillance and case management.
  • Community Outreach Health Education Activities.

The Florida Department of Health (FDOH) also has a web site www.flhealth.gov where you can find more health information, statistics, and a list of county health departments. During a health emergency, the DOH may issue a local, regional, or statewide health advisory. Health advisories can be found on the FDOH web site.

After cases are reported to the State Health Office, they are forwarded to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
