Please note: minor corrections were made to the 105 CMR booklet and lists of reportable diseases during July of 2009. The updated booklet and lists of reportable diseases have been posted below, and are identified as the "2 nd Edition" of the booklet and lists. In addition, although the regulations state that healthcare providers should report neonatal herpes simplex infection with "onset within 30 days of birth," MDPH is changing the case definition to request that neonatal herpes simplex infection be reported with an "onset within 42 days of birth." MDPH will formally update the case definition in the next promulgation of 105 CMR 300.000.
