Communicable diseases or conditions are transmitted from person to person. This places the entire community at risk. When a communicable disease is suspected, the Department of Health is the first agency to be contacted.
The epidemiology department at the Florida Department of Health in Lafayette County investigates and monitors communicable diseases in the county. Our epidemiology nurse is trained to assess, evaluate and monitor communicable disease reports to help prevent epidemics. This protects individuals, families and the community from disease outbreaks.
