Communicable diseases can be transmitted from person to person or from animal to person. The Lane County Public Health (LCPH) Communicable Disease section serves to prevent and control the spread of communicable diseases through investigation, providing immunizations, education and treatment.

Oregon state law requires the tracking of communicable diseases in order to prevent and control disease outbreaks. To ensure the safety of the community, the law also requires Physicians, Healthcare Providers and Labs to report all “reportable” diseases to LCPH. ​
