Communicable Diseases


Communicable diseases are infectious diseases that are spread from person to person – such as E. coli, Salmonella, or chickenpox – or from animals to people, like rabies or H1N1. The Daviess County Health Department prevents the spread of infectious diseases through disease surveillance, community education, outbreak response, and by providing recommendations to control the spread of communicable diseases in Daviess County.
