Communicable Disease

All local public health agencies are required to track the incidence and distribution of disease in the population and prevent and control vaccine-preventable diseases, zoonotic, vector, air-borne, water-borne and food-borne illnesses, and other diseases that are transmitted person-to-person.

SJBPH serves Archuleta, Dolores, La Plata, Montezuma and San Juan counties and provides support to the Southern Ute and Ute Mountain Ute tribes. SJBPH works closely with Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment in communicable disease investigation and control, particularly if the investigation crosses county lines or technical assistance is needed.
