This performance measure shows the number of reportable disease investigations completed for the Bear River Health District. Utah law requires that certain diseases be reported to a public health agency. The data is used to monitor disease activity throughout the state; identify new or emerging diseases and outbreaks; control disease and outbreaks through public health interventions; and prevent the spread of disease through education.
