The most effective way to prevent infection is good personal hygiene.
Covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.
Washing your hands frequently with soap and water; this is especially
important after using the bathroom, before handling food, and after
Thoroughly washing and cooking your food.
Disease Control includes:
Monitoring and investigating reports of communicable diseases by
working with doctors, hospitals, health professionals and the public to
find the source of the infection and the mode of its spread, to
identify those at risk of becoming infected, and to control the spread.
Providing reports to the State Department of Health on Reportable Diseases and Outbreaks.
Providing education and consultation to individuals and groups in our
community such as the public, physicians, hospitals, day care centers,
schools, nursing homes, veterinarians, animal control, and others.
