Confidential Morbidity Reports & Reporting Forms

The Communicable Disease Section performs surveillance, investigates cases and outbreaks of communicable diseases including gonorrhea, syphilis, and HIV/AIDS and provides educational activities designed to reduce or control the incidence of infectious disease in the County of San Bernardino.

The Communicable Disease Section relies on our public health partners to report more than 85 communicable diseases as mandated by California law. California Department of Public Health (CDPH) have recently updated Title 17 sections 2500 and 2505 of the California Code of Regulations.  Notable changes include the addition of HIV infection to be reported within 7 days, and the removal of Chlamydia trachomatis infections, including lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV) through Confidential Morbidity Reports (CMR). Note that Chlamydia trachomatis infections will continue to be reported by laboratories. For more information on our activities and a list of reportable diseases and conditions, view our Why Report? document.

The Confidential Morbidity Report (CMR) is required to be completed by providers. On the reverse of the CMR is a list of conditions reportable by providers under California Code of Regulations Title 17 Section 2500.

For conditions that are immediately reportable, please contact the Communicable Disease Section (CDS) at 1 (800) 722-4794, Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m. After hours, please call (909) 356-3805 and ask for the Public Health Duty Officer.

Confidential Morbidity Reports (CMR)

Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) has been reportable in San Bernardino County since 2002 for cases of all ages as a locally reportable condition. In 2016 year, RSV deaths in persons under 5 became reportable in California. State reporting requirements do not supersede what the local health officer has in place. Providers still need to report all cases, not just deaths for anyone with RSV in San Bernardino County.
