Health Alerts

In an effort to combat the spread of communicable diseases, all counties in California confidentially track and report the number of cases in their community. The Butte County Public Health Department monitors the number of reported communicable disease cases in our county as well as administers a range of programs and services.

To keep healthcare providers and partners informed of infectious disease outbreaks, emerging infectious diseases, immunization updates and other conditions of public health concern; the Butte County Public Health Department issues Health Alerts, Advisories, Updates and Information. See recent releases below.
