    Health Alert Network (HAN) - COVID-19 Updated Reporting Guidance | December 2, 2020

    Communicable disease reporting for individual cases
    Report to us or your local public health agency. There are several ways to report a case to us:

    Outbreaks
    Outbreaks are instances in which more than one person is ill. Providers should report known or suspected outbreaks in settings such as health care facilities, child care centers, schools and workplaces immediately (within four hours of detection) to either the local public health agency or to us at 303-692-2700.

     Lead test reporting
     Public health reporting and HIPAA
    Public health reporting is mandated by law and is not affected by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). HIPAA specifically provides for public health reporting without a patient's authorization or consent.
