Disease Control and Prevention Division
The Nevada Administrative Code and Nevada Revised Statutes Chapter 441A requires reports of specified diseases, food borne illness outbreaks and extraordinary occurrences of illness be made to the Local Health Authority. The purpose of disease reporting is to recognize trends in diseases of public health importance and to intervene in outbreak or epidemic situations.
Epidemiology is the branch of medical science that investigates all the factors that determine the presence or absence of diseases and disorders. Epidemiology helps us to understand how many people have a disease or disorder, if those numbers are changing, and how it affects our society.
Here at Carson City Health and Human Services, epidemiologists track diseases in our community as well as in neighboring Lyon and Douglas Counties. We receive and follow up on notifications of reportable diseases, investigate reports of disease outbreaks and, if necessary, interview people who are sick to try and determine how they got sick and also if they may have passed the illness on to others.
