Emergency Services Workers

Emergency service workers and designated officers should consult with Public Health about potential exposures to infectious diseases. Public Health can provide disease-specific recommendations for follow-up. The Emergency Service Worker Infectious Disease Risk Assessment (PDF, 3 pages) can be downloaded from our website, and Public Health can review the risk assessment with the Designated Officer to help determine next steps.

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.

Please call our Reportable Disease Intake Line at 1-800-265-7293 ext. 4752 for all exposures to body fluids or infectious diseases. After business hours, on weekends, or on statutory holidays, call 1-877-884-8653.

If you have been exposed to blood or body fluids go to the hospital for a risk assessment by a physician.

Mandatory blood testing
