Public Health Intervention for Sporadic Enteric Notifications
The purpose of this document is to describe the course of action to be undertaken by Communicable Disease Control Directorate (CDCD)/Population Health Unit (PHU) staff for the public health management of sporadic cases of notifiable enteric infections. The public health management of sporadic Hepatitis A cases is the subject of Operational Directive OD 0074/07, so will not be covered by this document.
This document should be read in conjunction with ‘Public Health Management of Outbreaks of Gastrointestinal Illness in WA’ and ‘Exclusion guidelines for patients with enteric infections and their contacts’
