School & Childcare

Schools and childcare facilities are required to submit a weekly communicable disease report. Van Buren Cass District Health Department Communicable Disease (CD) staff will review the data weekly to monitor trends in our community.

If a school or childcare facility suspects any serious disease, condition, or unusual cluster, contact our CD staff as soon as possible. In each school or childcare building, one person should be assigned to collect the required communicable disease information daily and submit through the links below.
