What are the safety procedures for the Health Department?

The Health Department is open for public services including immunizations and nursing services. There will be several initiatives and protocols in place to keep the patron and our workers safe. As we move forward with public reopening, please understand these procedures will be modified as seen fit for public protection. Please call the health department for further instructions prior to entering as a means of crowd control.

1. Masks are REQUIRED for entering the building.

2. Only one person (the person being serviced) is allowed in the waiting area.

3. Persons not being serviced will have to wait either in their cars or in the lobby area.

4. There are several hand sanitizers stations located in the lobby.
