Needle Clean-Up Kit and Disposal Program Expands in Snohomish County

Pick-up and drop-off locations added as part of ongoing response to opioid epidemic

SNOHOMISH COUNTY, Wash. – Since rolling out the free needle clean-up kit program in September 2017, over 800 kits have been distributed by the Snohomish Health District.

Voluntary Closure at La Hacienda in Gold Bar Following Norovirus-like Illnesses

Reminder to notify the Health District who become ill after eating out

SNOHOMISH COUNTY, Wash. – The Snohomish Health District is investigating a small number of people exhibiting norovirus-like symptoms following an off-site training, which included take-out food prepared by La Hacienda located at 101 9th Street in Gold Bar. While it remains unclear if the illness was caused by food, ongoing investigation indicates a higher likelihood that people at the training came into contact with an individual who was already infected with the virus. This can happen with cross-contamination of food by the sharing of utensils, using hands to pick-up food, and inadequate hand-washing. Due to the relatively short duration of symptoms, lab confirmation of the type of illness has not been available. Out of an abundance of caution, La Hacienda elected to voluntarily close the restaurant on Tuesday evening for disinfection and reopened on Wednesday afternoon.
