Public Health works closely with community partners to identify, prevent, and control communicable diseases in Island County. We receive communicable disease reports from healthcare providers, labs, schools, child care centers, and hospitals to identify disease trends and investigate outbreaks. 

Essential functions

Preventing and controlling communicable disease is a core public health function carried out by Island County Public Health (ICPH). We work with healthcare providers and community partners to reduce illness by taking the following actions:

  • Investigate notifiable conditions reported by health professionals and provide education on how to prevent future infections.
  • Conduct surveillance for notifiable conditions.
  • Serve as a resource to our health care providers, care centers, and school districts.
  • Educate the public, policy makers and community groups.
  • Cultivate partnerships with local and state authorities to effectively control the spread of diseases.
