Review communicable disease reporting training webinar online.

Complete and timely reporting of communicable diseases and conditions enables appropriate public health follow-up and helps identify outbreaks. Child care facilities are required to report within 24 hours when a confirmed case of any reportable communicable disease — including COVID-19 — is identified in their facility. Nevada Child Care Licensing and the Office of Public Health Investigations and Epidemiology (OPHIE) are to be notified to ensure a proper investigation can be completed and help to stop the spread of transmission throughout the facility.  To help child care facilities with communicable disease reporting requirements, Nevada Department of Health and Human Services staff conducted an online training on Dec. 9, to review reporting requirements in Nevada, contact information for the State of Nevada and local health authorities, and use REDCap to report cases and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations for COVID-19. A recording of the training is available to watch here on YouTube.

The link to report to Child Care Licensing and submit online can be found here and the link to report to OPHIE is here. The local health authority must also be notified.
