Infectious Diseases Regulations

Health authorities are empowered under Article 11 of the Infectious Diseases Regulations 1981, as amended, to carry out an investigation and take such steps as are necessary or desirable for investigating the source of infection, for preventing the spread of infection and for removing conditions favourable to infection, where there is reason to believe that a suspected case of a notifiable infectious disease exists or a possible source of infection of such disease exists.
Body Modifications Artists should contact their local health board if in doubt about any infection control issue, and ask to be referred to either the Department of Public Health or the Environmental Health Department.
