Maine CDC Health Advisory

Reporting Urgent Notifiable Conditions by Telephone

Maine CDC would like to remind providers and laboratories to immediately report all Urgent Notifiable Conditions on recognition or strong suspicion of disease by phone to Maine CDC at 1-800-821-5821.

The sustained ongoing challenges posed by the COVID-19 response elevates the importance of immediately reporting Urgent Notifiable Conditions by phone and not relying on electronic laboratory reports or faxing.

This includes ALL conditions with a phone icon next to them on the Notifiable Diseases and Conditions list EXCEPT for novel Coronavirus. Positive COVID-19 cases DO NOT need to be called in to Maine CDC.

All other disease conditions are reportable within 48 hours of recognition or strong suspicion of disease.
