What is a Line List?
A line list or illness register is a critical piece of information that the Public Health Unit and the facility can use to help guide outbreak management. They are used across multiple facilities including Residential Care Facilities (RCF’s) and childcare centres.
A line list provides facilities with appropriate key contacts and collects critical information about ALL people who work/attend/reside at a facility in outbreak.
