Nonarboviral Encephalitis Reporting
Report Encephalitis (specify etiology) within one week. Reporting Forms
Several Texas laws (Tex. Health & Safety Code, Chapters 81, 84 and 87) require specific information regarding notifiable conditions be provided to the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS). Health care providers, hospitals, laboratories, schools, and others are required to report patients who are suspected of having a notifiable condition (25 Tex. Admin. Code §97.2).
After 2012, nonarboviral encephalitis without a specific etiology (cause) has not been a separate reportable condition.
