List of Reportable Diseases- new 2011 (List of Reportable Diseases - Download PDF Download PDF)

California Code of Regulations, Title 17, Section 2500, mandates that certain communicable and non-communicable diseases/conditions be reported to the local health department using specified methods and time frames. The List of Reportable Diseases, which summarizes disease reporting requirements, may be downloaded from this website and freely copied.

It is important that you report notifiable diseases/conditions to the county where the patient resides so that appropriate follow-up can occur. The Confidential Morbidity Report (CMR) form may be used to report notifiable diseases/conditions to Orange County Public Health.

For more information on reporting, please see the 10/3/11 CD Connection Newsletter.

Confidential Morbidity Report (CMR) - new 2011

The Orange County Confidential Morbidity Report (CMR) form, used by providers to report any reportable disease or condition, has been revised to reflect updates in reporting procedures following changes at the state public health department level. This revision is the first major revision of the CMR for many years.

There are now three versions of the CMR form:

  • Version CMR-CD, for reporting most conditions including sexually transmitted diseases (STD) and the viral hepatitides (Confidential Morbidity Report - Download PDF Download PDF);
  • Version CMR-TB, only for reporting tuberculosis (Confidential Morbidity Report - Download PDF Download PDF); and
  • Version CMR-DMV, only for reporting to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) conditions which may impair a person's ability to operate a motor vehicle safely (Confidential Morbidity Report - Download PDF Download PDF).

It is important that you report notifiable diseases/conditions to the county where the patient resides so that appropriate follow-up can occur. For diseases/conditions that are reportable and specified methods and time frames for reporting, please see the List of Reportable Diseases.
