If you suspect or have confirmation of a reportable disease, report it immediately to the Medical Officer of Health. Timely reporting of communicable diseases is essential to monitor the health of the community and to provide the basis for preventive action.
Diseases are specified as reportable diseases under the authority of the Health Protection and Promotion Act (HPPA), Ontario Regulation 559/91 and Regulation 569.
Patient consent is not required for reporting this information. The Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA) explicitly allows health care providers to disclose information to the local Medical Officer of Health for purposes outlined under the HPPA.
To report a disease or for more information please contact Lambton Public Health:
• Phone: 519-383-8331 or 1-800-667-1839
• Fax: 519-383-7092 (no fax notification received on weekends)
