Infectious diseases are caused by bacteria, viruses, parasites or fungi and can cause illness that may require urgent public health intervention to reduce the spread of infection.
Infectious diseases can be spread from a person or the environment and it’s important we act quickly should there be an outbreak of an infectious disease.
If you think you have been exposed to an infectious disease, please seek medical attention.
NSW Health provide fact sheets on Infectious Diseases that can provide the most up to date information for you.
