To do this, the Clark County Public Health Communicable Disease program works closely with our healthcare provider and community partners to:

  • Conduct surveillance for notifiable conditions
  • Investigate notifiable conditions reported by health professionals
  • Investigate communicable disease outbreaks and recommend control measures to mitigate further spread
  • Serve as a consultant and technical resource to our healthcare provider community
  • Build and manage partnerships with local and state authorities to effectively control the geographic spread of diseases
