Public Health Surveillance is the collection, investigation and distribution of data about illness and death. This surveillance helps prevent and control disease and is used to protect and improve the health of the public.
In Washington State, healthcare providers, healthcare facilities, laboratories, veterinarians, food service establishments, child daycare facilities, and schools are legally required to notify public health authorities at their local health jurisdiction of suspected or confirmed cases of selected diseases or conditions. These are referred to as notifiable conditions. Below are the annual notifiable conditions surveillance report for region 2 (Clallam, Jefferson, and Kitsap County). For Kitsap Respiratory Illness Reports, please visit our Respiratory Illness Reports page.
Local (Region 2) Notifiable Conditions Reports
Note: These reports include total case numbers of confirmed, probable and suspected disease. A variety of unique factors may cause some diseases to be under-reported and should be considered when comparing annual reports.
