The Wyoming Department of Health Infectious Disease Epidemiology Program oversees the surveillance and control of infectious diseases throughout the State including: food and waterborne diseases (E. coli, salmonella, giardia, etc.), vaccine-preventable diseases (pertussis, bacterial meningitis, etc.), zoonotic diseases (plague, Q-fever, etc.), and vectorborne diseases (West Nile Virus, Colorado tick fever, etc.). Physicians and laboratories are required to report certain infectious diseases to the Wyoming Department of Health. In conjunction with this program, Fremont County Public Health responds to and investigates clusters and outbreaks of illnesses to limit further spread of disease.
A report is required by law within 7 days of diagnosis (unless otherwise specified on the Reportable Disease List) from both the attending health care provider/hospital and the laboratory performing diagnostic testing.
