Snohomish Health District suspends most in-person services effective noon todayMany services will continue to be available online and by phone
EVERETT, Wash. – Starting at noon on Monday, March 16, the Snohomish Health District will be temporarily closed for in-person services.
This is part of the ongoing effort to reduce spread of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Businesses and organizations in our community are being required to ensure social distancing and other health measures in their operations. It is important that the District does the same. The closure of the front counter reduces person-to-person contact and lessens the risk for staff and the public.
Services being impacted include:
Online and phone services will continue, as well as inspections and permit reviews. For birth and death certificates, visit www.snohd.org/vital-records or call 425-339-5290. Permit applications, online payments, inspection results and other services also are available at www.snohd.org. People can also call 425-339-5250 for questions about permits, payments, and other environmental health services normally provided at the front counter.
The health and safety of Snohomish County remains the Health District’s top priority. The community is encouraged to help prevent the spread of illness and to support the response to this outbreak by staying informed and sharing reliable information. This is a very fluid situation and information will be updated at www.snohd.org/ncov2019 and the Health District’s social media channels.
