What are the three characteristics of agents?
infectivity (capacity to cause infection), pathogenicity (capacity to cause disease), and virulence (severity of the disease)

Point Source - An epidemic in which all cases are infected at the same time, usually from a single source or exposure.
Continuous Source - An epidemic in which the casual agent (e.g. polluted drinking water, spoiled food) is infecting people who come into contact with it, over an extended period of time.
Person-to-Person (a.k.a. Propagated) - An epidemic in which the casual agent is transmitted from person to person, allowing the epidemic to propagate.

Correct, sorry I forgot about this. :oops:

Since no one has yet, I'm going to post a new question.

Name two examples in which sanitation is still not enough to prevent a food borne illness.

By sanitation, I believe you mean hand washing and cleaning surfaces that have touched raw foods or other contaminants like human waste with soap, water, and other disinfectants.

Hmm..... Botulism can still spread even with sanitation (since it's in canned foods) but can be prevented by heating your canned food. 
Eating raw fish or chicken also can cause salmonella regardless of if it's washed or not. (Unless you plan on spraying some kind of disinfectant that would make it inedible.)
Oh, and prions.

(I put three examples in case one was wrong)
I like birds.
