  • Explain how infectious diseases are identified and tracked, including an explanation of how the hospital and local health department (LHD) worked together to create the line list, and which locations in the community merit further investigation.
  • Explain at least eight action steps to manage this potential health threat. Describe the collaborative approach between the Massachusetts state and local health department and the hospital to investigate and contain the outbreak.
  • Describe at least three responsibilities of the Massachusetts state and local health department in this specific outbreak scenario.
