Most cases of reportable disease are identified by the health care system. A provider who knows or suspects that a child or worker is suffering from a reportable disease should contact their Licensing Officer, Public Health Nurse or Environmental Health Officer.

Some diseases that are not “reportable diseases” can still cause serious illness and need to be followed up by public health to determine the cause and to prevent spread. Many of these diseases cause diarrhea and vomiting.
Providers in child care centres should notify public health, when 3 or more children have been sick with similar symptoms, such as diarrhea or vomiting, within a short period of time.
