The main purpose of amending the sanitary code under this proposed rule is to add various rare infectious diseases to the list of reportable diseases and conditions that are reported to the state health officer within LDH/OPH. The proposed rule updates the disease reporting criteria in Part II, Part XVII and Part XXI of the sanitary code that makes reporting more consistent with recommendations of the CDC. Also, the proposed rule updates the rabies vaccination guidelines in Part III to meet current national recommendations.
