Emergent Health Issues

Emergent health issues significantly impact a community's health. Management of emergent disease requires a collaborative effort between the Department of Behavioral & Community Health, Healthcare Providers, and Laboratories, including prompt investigation and response facilitated through the immediate reporting of suspected emergent diseases.

Please contact the Communicable Disease Control Division by calling 845-486-3402 to make a report, request clinical submission, or for treatment guidance.
