This includes zoonotic diseases that are transmitted between animals and humans such as rabies, giardia, cryptococcus, ringworm, leptospirosis and campylobacteriosis.
It is estimated that 48 million people get sick and 128,000 are hospitalized from foodborne diseases in the U.S. each year. Common symptoms of foodborne illness are diarrhea or vomiting (gastroenteritis). Noroviruses are the most common cause.
Public Health Division staff investigate foodborne gastroenteritis outbreaks and work with local health departments to notify people when outbreaks occur.
Tuberculosis (TB) is a bacterial disease primarily of the lungs. It is airborne and spreads when someone with active TB disease coughs, laughs or sings
