The Communicable Disease Program at the Perth District Health Unit strives to reduce the impact of infectious diseases on residents of Perth County. Our team monitors the rates of these diseases in the community to watch for trends or changes. We also investigate disease outbreaks in an effort to stop their spread as soon as possible.
If you are diagnosed with a reportable infectious disease, your doctor will inform us and a public health nurse or public health inspector may contact you to find out more information about your illness. They will provide you with information on preventing the spread of your illness to those around you.
We want to keep you, your family, and all of Perth County healthy and disease-free!
