National Outbreak Reporting System (NORS)
: The National Outbreak Reporting System (NORS) is a web-accessible system designed to improve the quality, quantity, and availability of data for waterborne, foodborne, enteric person-to-person, and enteric zoonotic disease outbreaks in the U.S. NORS replaces the electronic Foodborne Outbreak Reporting System (eFORS) and the paper-based reporting system used to report waterborne disease outbreaks. Separate sections in NORS for enteric person-to-person and animal-to-person disease outbreak reports are intended to enhance the information available to quantify, describe, and understand these types of outbreaks at a national level.
