Zoonotic Disease Information

Interactions with animals can pose a risk for zoonoses, diseases of animals that can be transferred to humans. Often, the animal shows little, if any, sign of illness.  The fact sheets on this page provide information on how to prevent transmission of zoonotic diseases associated with laboratory animals.

If you suspect that you have sustained an exposure to a zoonotic disease, contact:
