Public Health front office moves to virtual operations in response to virus
Vancouver, Wash. - Clark County Public Health’s front office, which includes vital records (birth and death certificates), environmental public health (permits and plan reviews), and food worker testing will be moving to a virtual format beginning Tuesday, March 17.
The decision to close the lobby was made in consideration of the health of customers, employees and the community as novel coronavirus, COVID-19, circulates. The closure will be re-evaluated by April 13 to determine a date to re-open the lobby.
“We need to take every precaution necessary to slow the spread of COVID-19, and we want to do all we can to protect our community and staff,” said Dr. Alan Melnick, Clark County health officer and Public Health director.
All services are available online.
