Outbreak Prevention and Response

An outbreak can be devastating to businesses large and small. Early and comprehensive intervention is the key to controlling illness transmission and keeping guests healthy. Use the resources on this page to develop prevention strategies and response plans for your facility. In the event of an outbreak, the Southern Nevada Health District will work with your business to identify appropriate corrective actions and precautions to end the outbreak quickly.

If you suspect that you might be experiencing an outbreak at your property, please reach out to SNHD immediately. The sooner SNHD knows about it, the sooner we can work together to help end it. You can call the Office of Epidemiology at (702) 759-1300 at any time, Environmental Health Foodborne Illness at (702) 759-1504, or your assigned inspector during business hours.
