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:

About Union County Taxes

Tax Administration lists, appraises and assesses all real and personal property in Union County according to state law. Each year as of January 1, the Assessor must compile a tax roll of property subject to “ad valorem” (according to value) taxation.

Union County is a permanent listing county and does not require yearly tax listings of real property unless changes or improvements have been made. Maintenance such as painting/wallpaper, replacement of existing structures, landscaping, etc. is not considered an improvement, and does not require listing. It is the responsibility of the taxpayer to notify our office of any changes, other than those recorded by deed, by plot or by building permit, during the January listing period.

The North Carolina General Statutes mandate that all real property (land and buildings) must be reappraised at least once every eight years. Union County Board of Commissioners used a four year revaluation cycle in 2004 and in 2008. The next revaluation cycle was in 2015.
