Michigan Communicable Disease Rules

Physicians, clinical laboratories, primary and secondary schools, childcare centers and camps are required to report the occurrence or suspected occurence of any disease, condition or infection as identified in the Michigan Communicable Disease Rules.  In addition, all other health care providers are authorized to report to local health authorities.  Together, they play a key role in state and local efforts to control communicable diseases.  The public health system depends upon these reports of diseases to monitor the health of the community and to provide the basis for preventive action.
