SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    The National Park Service (NPS) Organic Act of 1916 (Organic Act) 
(54 U.S.C. 100101 et seq.) gives the NPS broad authority to regulate 
the use of the park areas under its jurisdiction. With over 400 NPS 
sites and hundreds of millions of visits per year, a large potential 
exists for exposure to disease agents within the National Park System. 
The NPS Office of Public Health (OPH) is an internal agency-specific 
public health capability, managed, funded and operated by NPS. This 
program is primarily staffed with commissioned corps officers on detail 
to the agency from the United States Public Health Service and is a 
national activity headquartered in Washington, DC with field staff 
located across the NPS system. Through disease surveillance and 
response, on-site evaluation/hazard analysis, consultation, policy 
guidance, and coordination with local, state and other federal health 
jurisdictions, OPH professionals assist park superintendents in 
protecting and promoting visitor health in the frontcountry and 
backcountry/wilderness. (NPS Management Policy 2006, 8.2.5.6)
    The Disease Reporting and Surveillance System (DRSS) collects de-
identified data on illness reports and standardizes data collection 
regarding illness case reports and outbreaks among NPS employees, park 
concessioner employees, and visitors to the park. Individual illness 
reports are entered into the DRSS database by NPS staff, as well as 
employees of park concessioners and Commercial Use Authorization (CUA) 
holders, utilizing a secure web-based interface application. These data 
provide parks, OPH, staff and managers of park concessioners (lodging, 
restaurants, general stores, and snack bars), and park clinic 
concessioners with an early warning system for potential outbreaks and 
inform public health interventions. By collecting and storing data from 
multiple sources, the system monitors health trends among NPS 
employees, concessioner employees, park visitors through CUA holders, 
and clinic visitors; detect potential clusters or outbreaks; and inform 
the development and implementation of disease response and control 
activities. The system is currently in operation in Yellowstone 
National Park; however, the NPS hopes to expand the system to other 
parks in the future.
