Tools:

Restaurant Non-Cooperation Letter

During a restaurant outbreak investigation, it can often be challenging to obtain patron contact information (i.e. credit card receipts, online orders, or reservations) from the restaurant. Providing a letter explaining the public health authority to collect this information is one way to increase cooperation from the restaurant.

Surveillance Case Letter

During PFGE cluster investigations, cases may not answer phone calls or initially refuse to be interviewed. Sending a letter explaining that they are most likely part of an outbreak can increase interview participation.
