Contagious Disease Emergencies
A contagious disease emergency could affect many people. It could cause
mild illness, hospitalization, or death in rare cases. In the event of an
infectious disease emergency, the San Francisco Department of Public Health
will provide up-to-date information and instructions to the public through
media and public outreach sources.
To find out how to prepare yourself and your family for a contagious disease emergency, visit the San Francisco Department of Public Health’s Communicable Disease Control and Prevention site.
This site also provides information on what San Francisco is doing to prepare for an avian or pandemic flu emergency, including mass distribution of medications or vaccines.
