A Guide to Common Infections

This booklet will help support you in the management of a child attending your facility who has a communicable disease. The chart provides information about communicable diseases, including signs and symptoms, how they are spread, if it is a reportable disease and links to additional resources.

If a person is suspected or confirmed of having a disease from the Diseases of Public Health Significance list, the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit (WECHU) must be informed.
