Communicable Disease Control Program

Communicable disease is defined as "illness due to a specific infectious agent or its toxic products that arises through transmission of that agent or its products from an infected person, animal, or reservoir to a susceptible host, either directly or indirectly through an intermediate plant or animal host, vector, or the inanimate environment." Communicable disease pathogens include bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites and prions.

Communicable diseases can have a significant impact on the population. The surveillance and control of such diseases is an important part of protecting the public's health. The Communicable Disease program primarily deals with infectious diseases that are reportable by law.

The program also deals with other communicable diseases of public health significance, such as:

  • Influenza
  • Norovirus infection
  • Certain healthcare-associated infections.

For additional information please visit the NC Communicable Disease website.

The program responsibilities include:

  • Monitoring disease outbreaks
  • Monitoring reportable disease rates
  • Providing education to the public and medical community to prevent the spread of disease
  • Implementation of and enforcement of control measures to prevent the spread of infection.
  • Control and prevention of rabies and other diseases of animal origin that can affect humans.

Rabies is a vaccine preventable disease in humans, dogs, cats and ferrets as well as some domestic livestock. All mammals are susceptible to rabies and it is nearly always fatal. Rabies can be prevented in humans with timely and appropriate treatment. In North Carolina the disease most often occurs in wild animals especially skunks, raccoons, bats and foxes. Raccoon rabies is present in the raccoon population in virtually every North Carolina county. For additional information on Rabies please visit:

Reasonable Modification Policy for individuals with disabilities

Requests for modifications of Union County Division of Transportation’s (UCT) policies, practices, or procedures to accommodate an individual with a disability may be made either in advance or at the time of the transportation service. UCT is best able to address and accommodate a request when customers make their requests for modifications in advance. The process for making a request is as follows:

Advance Requests:

  • When making a request, the passenger must thoroughly describe what is needed in order to use the service, and why this assistance is necessary.
  • Whenever feasible, a request for modification to UCT’s service should be made in advance before UCT is expected to provide the service. UCT will review the request, and will make every effort to communicate in advance whether or not the requested modification can be made.
  • If the modification is not made, UCT will provide the reason for the denial of the request. Requests may be denied on one or more of the following grounds:
    • Granting the request would fundamentally alter the nature of UCT’s service, programs, or activities;
    • Granting the request could create a direct threat to the health or safety of the requestor or others;
    • Granting the request would create an undue financial or administrative burden for the Agency; or
    • Without such modification, the individual with a disability is otherwise able to fully use UCT’s services, programs, or activities for their intended purpose.

Requests may be made through the following means:

  • Mailing the written request:
    UCT- Modification Request- 610 Patton Ave, Monroe, NC 28110

Same Day Requests:

  • When a request for modification cannot practicably be made and determined in advance, the passenger may make a request on the same day, at the time of, or during service.
    • The passenger should make the request to the UCT driver.
    • The passenger must describe in detail what accommodation is required and why it is necessary in order to use the service.
  • Driver may grant a request if such request is reasonable and meets the requirements of the UCT’s policy.
  • If a driver is unsure if the request can be granted or declined, she/he is required to consult with dispatch to receive instructions, who in turn will communicate with management and/or UCT Safety Officer.
  • Requests may be denied on the following grounds:
    • Granting the request would fundamentally alter the nature of UCT’s service, programs, or activities;
    • Granting the request could create a direct threat to the health or safety of the requestor or others;
    • Granting the request would create an undue financial or administrative burden for the Agency; or
    • Without such modification, the individual with a disability is otherwise able to fully use UCT’s services, programs, or activities for their intended purpose
  • Availability may be very limited when providing service and/or if the request would require extended consideration, UCT may not be able to grant the passenger’s request immediately. In that case, the passenger may be encouraged to submit a written request for further consideration for future trips.
  • UCT’s ability to grant the requested modifications may vary by day of travel, time of day, or other circumstances. For example, while a request may be able to be granted in one instance, that same request may be denied in another instance if granting the request would fundamentally alter the nature of the service, create a safety threat, or if the request is not a functional necessity.
  • In the case of a denial of a modification request, UCT will take, to the maximum extent possible and in compliance with its policies, any other appropriate actions to ensure you receive service.
