Shared Portal for Outbreak Tracking (SPOT) Reporting
SPOT Reporting is now available to Lake County schools, workplaces, congregate settings and other entities, to report COVID-19 exposures to Lake County Public Health. SPOT Reporting in Spanish is also available. The SPOT Intake Form opens best with Edge or Chrome browsers.
The goal of the School and Shared Portal for Outbreak Tracking (SPOT) is to expand California's contact tracing efforts by facilitating collaboration and sharing of information between schools, workplaces, congregate settings, other entities and local health departments (LHD), through CalCONNECT, California's public health contact tracing and data management system.
Who Must Report?
Cal/OSHA Emergency Temporary Standards require most Lake County Employers to report COVID-19 outbreaks in the workplace to Lake County Public Health (LCPH) within 48 hours.
Outbreaks are defined as:
- Outbreak - 3 or more cases in a workplace within a 14 day period
- Major outbreaks - 20 or more cases within a 30-day period
Report an Outbreak via the new SPOT Intake Form - this form is confidential. The information is sent to CalCONNECT, and allows the Lake County Public Health to review the information. SPOT Intake Form opens best with Edge or Chrome browsers.
