Health Service Region 1 Epidemiology Response Team (BioTerrorism Response) Dec05-Jun06


Communicable Disease Survellance Report

 Eduardo J. Sanchez, M.D., M.P.H.

Dear Public Health Partner,

The Communicable Disease Surveillance staff in the Canyon and Lubbock regional offices are now providing information relating to incidence of reportable diseases in the Region 1 area on a quarterly basis.

This report will tell you what diseases have been reported to the Health Department for residents of your county during December 2005
thru June 2006. It will not tell you how many cases may have occurred in your county. If diseases are occurring in unusual numbers or presentations, you will continue to receive Health Alerts as you normally do now.

If you would like additional information, or have questions or comments, please contact us.

Thank you.
