By applying the theory of asymptotic speeds of spread and traveling waves to a nonlocal epidemic model, we established the existence of minimal wave speed for monotone traveling waves, and show that it coincides with the spreading speed for solutions with initial functions having compact supports. The numerical simulations are also presented.
