Contagious Disease Preparedness

A contagious disease emergency could affect many people. It could cause mild illness, hospitalization, and/or death in certain cases. In the event of an infectious disease emergency, the Peninsula Health District may provide up-to-date information and instructions to the public through media and public outreach sources.

Being Prepared
