Health Services – Infectious (Communicable) Disease

Deer tick
The Health Department’s  Communicable Disease Program provides education and tracks infectious diseases in the county to help keep residents from getting sick.

Some diseases we track include Lyme Disease, Pertussis (whooping cough), respiratory disease, and gastrointestinal (GI) diseases. We work with our Environmental Health Bureau to prevent and treat rabies in people, and foodborne illness.

We also help refugees and others coming into Carroll County from other countries to get the vaccines they need.

Our Communicable Disease nurses also screen people who are at risk of having TB and provide treatment for people with active TB disease or TB infection.
