Emergency Services Workers

Emergency service workers and designated officers can consult with Public Health on potential exposures to infectious diseases. Public Health can provide disease-specific recommendations for follow-up.

Public Health can also provide resources for emergency service workers (such as fire, ambulance, and police) to minimize exposure to infectious diseases on the job, including those spread through blood and body fluids.
