Disease Prevention

The health department strives to control the spread of diseases within the community. All medical providers are mandated to report communicable diseases to the health department so the department can provide follow-up and disease investigation. The department collaborates with local providers to ensure they are updated on all health alerts and aware of any diseases circulating in the county.

Environmental Services

The environmental sanitarian inspects establishments such as: lodging, food, schools, daycares and nutrition centers. In addition, the sanitarian investigates food-borne illness outbreaks, animal bites and environmental exposure hazards. Valid sewage complaints are also investigated.
