Communicable Diseases Reporting for Schools

Schools and childcare facilities are required to submit a weekly communicable disease report. Calhoun County Communicable Disease (CD) staff will review the data weekly to monitor trends in the community.

If a school or childcare facility suspects of any serious disease, condition, or unusual cluster, contact the CD staff as soon as possible.
In each school or childcare building, one person should be assigned to collect the required communicable disease information daily and submit through the website below:
