Communicable Disease Reporting
Public Health is mandated to control the spread of communicable diseases including STDs. Our epidemiologist, nurses, and other investigative staff keep track of the number of cases of each STDs in our county. For STDs, such as chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis follow up with provider to assure that CDC recommended treatment is provided to cases, and follow up on cases and contacts to reduce spreading of disease. We also assist the public by providing recommendations for controlling STDs spread or exposure in many different settings, and monitor disease patterns in order to stop transmission.
Reporting of suspected or confirmed communicable disease including STDs is mandated under the Arizona Administrative Codes known as Title 9 R9-6-202, R9-6-203, and R9-6-204. The primary responsibility for reporting rests with the provider (R9-6-202a), Administrator of a Health Care Institution or Correctional Facility (R-6-202b), Administrator of a School, Child Care Establishment, or Shelter (R9-6-203), and Clinical Laboratories (R9-6-204). Eighty-seven different communicable diseases are reportable to the Yuma County Public Health Services District.
Some reports are received by mail using a special form which can be downloaded by health care providers from this webpage. Other diseases must be reported by telephone within 24 hours (see list of reportable diseases).
