To Report a Disease


Regulations

All Georgia physicians, laboratories, and other health care providers are required by law (OCGA 31-12-2) to report patients with the conditions listed under Notifiable Disease Reporting Requirements. Both laboratory confirmed and clinical diagnoses are reportable within the specified time interval.

Reporting enables appropriate public health follow-up for your patients, helps identify outbreaks, and provides a better understanding of disease trends in Georgia. Reporting of diseases may be done through our web-based electronic disease reporting system, SendSS(State Electronic Notifiable Disease Surveillance System). You may also print the GEROGIA NOTIFIABLE DISEASE/CONDITON REPORT FORM below and fax it to our office: ATTN: Epidemiology (770) 892-9148
