Infectious / Communicable Diseases
El Paso County Public Health will be CLOSED Thursday and Friday, November 27 and 28, 2014, in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday.
We work to detect, investigate, control and prevent infectious diseases and disease outbreaks. Communicable Disease staff collects, analyzes and reports infectious disease data, and provides public health consultation and education for health care providers and the public.
Please note: If you have experienced an illness that you believe is related to consumption of food, or need to report a disease or outbreak, please call our Communicable Disease staff at (719) 578-3220. We take these reports seriously and we prefer that you contact us by telephone. Thank you.
