Through passive surveillance, Clinical Health Services tracks the occurrence and trends of communicable diseases in Fort Bend County. We rely on the eyes and ears of our community partners such as local physicians, clinics, hospitals, schools, and laboratories to notify our office of reportable diseases or unusual syndromes that they identify to prevent and control the spread of disease.

For a list of reportable diseases in Texas, please visit the Department of State Health Services website, http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/epidemiology/default.shtm.
