How do you decide which infectious diseases to investigate?

The State of Idaho produces the “Idaho Reportable Disease List” which specifically details what diseases are to be investigated by Public Health.  The Staff Epidemiologists follow the Idaho “Investigative Guidelines for Reportable Diseases and Conditions” to investigate all of those diseases.  The investigations conducted by our staff help to discover the source of the disease, and control the spread throughout our region.
