Infectious Disease

Sick boy

Infectious diseases (also called communicable diseases) can spread between people many different ways including through coughs and sneezes, contaminated food, and skin-to-skin contact.  Sometimes a person is contagious to others even before they start to feel sick. In most cases, it is important that a sick person stays at home so that they do not spread the disease to others.
