    Although it is from 2007, and the influenza needs to be updated (it's blank), the CDC has a document which states which isolation requiement is needed for each disease process. It is a long document, but it is in Appendix A, on page 95 of the document.

    Here's the CDC site for your reference ... hope this helps. The Appendix starts on Page 94.
