Communicable Disease and Reporting

Keeping our kids safe

For Schools & Childcare Providers

To help track and control the spread of communicable diseases, schools and childcare providers are required by the State of Michigan (Michigan Legislature Public Health Code (Excerpt) Act 368 of 1978) to report communicable diseases to local health departments. BEDHD also provides consultation to schools and childcare providers about managing communicable diseases.
