Online Outbreak Notification Report

The Online Outbreak Notification report is a streamlined submission via the use of SharePoint site that provides a user-oriented data submission process.

This process has been updated from email to a secure online platform to enhance health unit user experience, and to streamline internal processing. Outbreak notification from health units allows PHO’s Laboratory to prepare for incoming specimens, gauge potential operational impact and assess opportunities for further assistance. The contact information provided may also help streamline reporting of results.

The tool is restricted to public health unit staff with:

  • a role in providing outbreak information to PHO’s laboratory for preparation of incoming samples for testing
  • an understanding and respect for the confidential and sensitive nature of the information
