10A NCAC 41A .0101: Reportable Diseases and Conditions

The reporting of all influenza deaths was deemed critical to influenza surveillance efforts and was critical in helping public health officials identify and characterize the groups who are at highest risk so that they could design appropriate public health interventions to help save lives. As such, the Commission adopted a permanent amendment to the rule that required that all flu deaths be reported. The amendment was adopted and became effective April 1, 2011. However, when the rule was more recently amended for HIV reporting changes, the language requiring flu death reporting was inadvertently removed from the rule. This amendment re-establishes flu death reporting for all ages.

A public hearing was held on April 17, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. in the Cardinal Room, located at 5605 Six Forks Road, Raleigh, NC 27609 External link.
