If you have a public health emergency or an urgent report of an infectious disease, you may contact the Northeast Health District after business hours by calling 706-583-2870.

Please be prepared to tell (or leave a message for) the staff member with the immediate details, including your name and call-back phone number. Someone will return your call as soon as possible.

This number is NOT for making or rescheduling appointments or for general contact of the local health department. Regular reporting of notifiable diseases should be reported as normal through SENDSS or to the district health office.
