Acute Disease Service: What to Report
Oklahoma Administrative Code (OAC) Reportable Disease Rules – OAC 310:515 specifies which diseases and conditions are reportable and the timeframe and methods for reporting.
Oklahoma Administrative Code (OAC) Novel Coronavirus Regulations – OAC 310:517 specifies reporting regulations specific to novel coronaviruses.
The Oklahoma Disease Reporting Manual further defines the specifics for clinical and laboratory reporting requirements for diseases and conditions. In addition to reporting requirements, the manual contains guidance in determining if an event should be reported, and specifies which specimens and isolates are required to be forwarded to the OSDH Public Health Laboratory.
