Reportable Conditions In San Antonio & Bexar County

The Communicable Disease Prevention and Control Act (Health & Safety Code, Chapter 81) requires physicians, dentist, veterinarians and chiropractors to report, after the first professional encounter, each examined patient suspected of having a reportable disease. Some individuals at hospitals, laboratories and schools are also required to report. Details on reporting notifiable diseases and duties of local health authorities may be found in Article 97, Title 25, Texas Administrative Code. Failure to report is a class B misdemeanor.
