2. Vital Statistics - Due to the current circumstances of this pandemic, we have applications for you to purchase a birth or death certificate in our lobby. Drop your application and form of payment into the envelope provided and we will have it ready to pick up in the same spot within 24 hours later. If you have to leave a voice mail in any of our divisions, including Vital Statistics, Environmental Health (which includes sewer and water), Food and Nursing, please give us 24 hours to return your call. We appreciate your patience during this time.
3. If you test for Covid-19, please quarantine yourself until you receive your test results, whether you do or don't have symptoms.
4. If your Covid test results are positive, the Health Department will try to reach out to you. This is proving to be an extremely overwhelming task. You may not hear from us until late in your isolation period. As soon as you receive your results, start your isolation period of 10 days. We need you to contact the family members, friends and work members that you may have exposed. Those contacts need to quarantine themselves for 14 days from the day they were exposed to you. Please be diligent in following these instructions so YOU can help US decrease the spread of this virus.
