Disease Investigation: 

Public Health is the lead organization for community-based disease investigation and control. Through partnership with other health and medical organizations, support from elected and municipal officials and institutions, health officials can limit the spread of a disease, and reduce its impact on a community. What can you do? Stay home if you are ill, get tested, and most importantly get vaccinated! Visit our Immunizations page for more information.
