In Oregon, norovirus is not a reportable disease. Although single cases of non-reportable disease are not reportable, Oregon Administrative Rule 333-018 requires all outbreaks to be reported and investigated by the Local Health Department (LHD) (see OAR 333-018.0000 and OAR 333-018-0015). An outbreak is defined as two or more cases with symptoms clustered in time and space. Therefore, if there are two or more persons showing symptoms of norovirus or other acute gastroenteritis in a LTCF within a short period of time, it must be reported to the LHD within 24 hours.
For more information, see norovirus outbreak management and disease prevention guidelines (MMWR article, March 4, 2011 / 60(RR03);1-15)
