How We Learn About Infectious Disease
We investigate reports of infectious disease in Rutland County. If you are diagnosed with a reportable disease, one of our nurses may contact you to discuss your illness, ask you about how you got sick and help prevent your friends and family from also getting sick. Learn more about the Health Department’s work to prevent, track and treat reportable diseases, to keep our communities healthy.
To notify the Health Department about a reportable disease, call 802-863-7240 or 800-640-4374. Someone is available to receive your report 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. See more information for health care providers.
