reopens most in-person services.

We’ve missed you! 

Last year, we suspended most in-person services at our office. Governor Inslee announced the state will fully reopen by June 30. So, on Thursday, July 1, we’re reopening! We’ll adjust our Thursday hours in the future, but for now, please expect to visit us 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. M-F. 

Your health and our staff’s health are our top priorities, and we’re taking extra precautions to ensure your safety.

We want you to know what you can expect when you visit our building for in-person services. COVID-19 disease rates are declining sharply, and vaccination rates continue to rise. This is great news, and we appreciate the steps you’ve taken to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community.

As a public health agency with some clinical services on site, we will ask our customers and clients to take some extra steps until our disease rates are even lower and vaccination rates are higher. We will re-evaluate this guidance in the weeks and months ahead and adjust as needed.

What to expect:

  • Please wear a face covering. Don’t have one? We have one for you.
  • Answer a few quick questions to ensure you are symptom-free.
  • We won’t ask you about your vaccination status.
  • We may limit the number of people we can serve in an area. Look for signs.
  • Staff who serve our customers will wear masks, regardless of their vaccination status.

Our friendly staff are excited to see you!

Don’t want to come in? No problem.

Many of our services are available online:

We look forward to a time when disease rates decrease and vaccination rates increase. If you’re fully vaccinated, thank you! You’re protecting yourself and our community. If you’re not yet vaccinated, please get your COVID-19 vaccine so you can get back to what you love. It’s simple and free. You don’t need insurance or ID. Visit or call (253) 649-1412 to learn more.

Together, we can put this pandemic in the rear-view mirror.
