Notifiable disease guidelines

Public health disease management guidelines are the recommended practices by health professionals for the follow-up of notifiable diseases.


The notifiable disease management guidelines are developed by the Alberta government with input and advice from medical officers of health, public health nurses, public health inspectors, laboratories, and medical infectious disease specialists.

The guidelines are provided to support practitioners in meeting the communicable disease management requirements in the Public Health Act.
