Reporting Notifiable Diseases

Reports from providers allow the state to start investigating suspect cases instead of waiting for lab confirmation. This helps us limit disease transmission in the community. Unlike laboratories, providers can also provide us with clinical information useful in the contact investigation.

How To Make a Report

  • Category 1 reports can be telephoned to Maine CDC 24/7 by calling 800-821-5821
  • Category 2 reports can be faxed 24/7 to Maine CDC at 800-293-7543. Download the Reporting Form.
  • Reports should be sent within 24 hours for Category I diseases, and within 48 hours for Category II diseases.
