Communicable Disease Reporting Requirements

For general information and 24-hour/seven-day-a-week public health emergencies, call (800) 251-2584.

Reporting of suspected or confirmed communicable diseases is mandated under the New York State Sanitary Code (10NYCRR 2.10). Although physicians have primary responsibility for reporting, school nurses, laboratory directors, infection control practitioners, daycare center directors, health care facilities, state institutions and any other individuals/locations providing health care services are also required to report communicable diseases.

Reports need to be submitted within 24 hours of diagnosis. However, some diseases warrant prompt action, such as a telephone call, and should be reported immediately.
