Infectious Disease Report System

Franklin County Public Health and Columbus Public Health


The Infectious Disease Reporting System is the combined infectious disease reporting system for health care provided in Franklin County, including the City of Columbus. The Columbus and Franklin County Public Health agencies have joined forces to make the reporting, tracking and investigation of infectious disease cases easier and more convenient. Physicians, hospitals, infection control professionals, laboratorians and any individual, per Communicable Disease Rules 3701-3-01 through 3701-3-30 of the Ohio Administrative Code (OAC), are legally required to report suspected, lab-confirmed, and clinical diagnoses of specific diseases and conditions within specified time frames to IDRS.
