Outbreak details

Is this case part of an outbreak?

  • Select the “Yes” checkbox if case is part of an outbreak.

Outbreak No.

  • There are two methods to link a case to an outbreak:
    • For the first, within the case report form select the “yes” checkbox, then copy and paste the outbreak number to the box, or begin typing the outbreak number and select from a drop-down menu (see below).
      The name of the associated institution is also required if the case is part of an institutional sub-cluster.
    • For the second method, a case can be added from the outbreak form. This will automatically check the outbreak box and populate the outbreak number field.
