Disease Reporting

Communicable Disease Reporting

Healthcare providers, laboratories, and the public help improve the community’s health when they report cases of disease to the health department. These reports give health officials a chance to find out where the disease came from and stop its spread before other people get sick. All information reported to the health department is confidential and will not be shared.

To report a disease to the Summit County Health Department:

Call 435-333-1500 or fax 435-333-1580. For After Hours and Weekends (Utah Department of Health), call 888-EPI-UTAH.

Please include in your report as much of the following information as possible:
(you may use the Confidential Morbidity Report Form – see link below)

  • Patient’s name
  • Onset date (patient began feeling ill)
  • Patient’s contact information (address, phone number)
  • Laboratory results (if available) and name of laboratory
  • Patient’s age and/or date of birth
  • Name of the disease (if known) and/or symptoms
  • Patient’s gender
