COVID-19

CommDisease

COVID-19 (Sars-CoV2) is an illness caused by a virus that can spread from person to person, also known as a communicable disease (see below). The virus that causes COVID-19 is a novel (new) coronavirus that has not previously been seen in humans. Symptoms can range from mild (or no symptoms) to severe illness. COVID-19 has spread throughout the world.

If you are experiencing symptoms or believe you have been exposed to COVID-19, contact your health care provider. For COVID-19 diagnostic testing, call your health care provider. Limited antibody testing is available at some provider offices in our county at this time.

If you have questions specific to COVID-19, please call the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) hotline at 1-888-364-3065. For questions specific to our community, call CCHD at 518-565-4840.

Communicable Diseases

Communicable diseases are conditions which are spread person to person by direct contact, air, food, water, or animals.  Timely reporting of communicable diseases by physicians allows public health agencies at the local, state and federal levels to identify newly emerging infections, detect outbreaks, prevent secondary transmission, and evaluate the effectiveness of control measures. For some diseases, every hour can make a difference in preventing illness and death. 

Healthcare providers, healthcare facilities, laboratories, and local and State health departments all share the responsibility for reporting, follow-up, and control of communicable diseases.

Please refer to the Info Bar for other communicable disease information and health care provider forms.
