Illness & Injury

What we do

Our Epidemiology team monitors, investigates, and responds to disease reports on the causes of illness and death in Mesa County and Western Colorado. In Colorado (and across the United States), certain diseases and conditions are reportable to public health as they require follow up to identify the source of illness and prevent additional spread. A current list of reportable conditions is available here.

We utilize this community-level disease data to inform residents about illnesses affecting our community and how to protect against infection.

To report a disease, call the Disease Reporting and Consultation line at 970-254-4120.
