Reporting Requirements

Reporting Requirements

The Lincoln Trail District Health Department is responsible for the prevention and control of infectious and communicable diseases in our 6 county area. Staff will provide investigations of the diseases to determine the source of the disease/illness. We also determine whether other individuals need to be contacted for evaluation.

Surveillance of diseases/illnesses may help determine things such as the following:

  • Estimate the size of the health problem
  • Determine where an illness is occurring geographically
  • Detect epidemics or define a problem
  • Detect changes in health practices
  • Facilitate emergency planning
 

Kentucky Law 902 KAR 2:020 requires medical providers, hospitals, and laboratories to report infectious and communicable diseases to the local health department serving in the jurisdiction the patient resides.
