The purpose of this Communicable Disease (CD) Manual is to provide guidance and instruction to San Benito County Public Health Services CD staff for responding to a local communicable disease incident as well as ongoing surveillance. It is also designed to be a reference for our healthcare partners such as Hazel Hawkins Memorial Hospital (HHMH), HHMH laboratory and local healthcare providers for infectious disease information from a public health perspective. The CD Manual will, therefore, also serve as an educational tool to assist us in working collaboratively with our partners on prevention, control, and reporting of infectious disease in our community.
