Several Texas laws (Tex. Health & Safety Code, Chapters 81, 84 and 87) require specific information regarding notifiable conditions be provided to the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS). Health care providers, hospitals, laboratories, schools, and others are required to report patients who are suspected of having a notifiable condition (Title 25, Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 97, Subchapter A).

Report Plague immediately by calling (800) 705-8868 or (800) 252-8239.  Plague report forms for humans (Plague Case Investigation Form) and animals (Report Form for Zoonotic Diseases in Animals) are available on this site page.
