Communicable Diseases
Communicable diseases are reported to the Marshall County Health Department for follow-up, testing of contacts, and prevention education.

What can you do to prevent getting a communicable disease?

  • Wash your hands well and often with soap and water. This is the most important infection control measure.
  • Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze, throw away the tissue.
  • If you are near a person who is coughing or sneezing, keep a distance from them of at least 3 feet.
  • Prepare and handle food in a sanitary manner.
  • If something doesn't taste right, don't eat it. When in doubt, throw it out.
  • Dispose of wastes properly.
  • Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces regularly.
  • Use latex or vinyl gloves for contact with blood.
