NOW OPEN: South Health District’s COVID-19 hotline is now open. This hotline is for ALL things COVID-19. Individuals who fit the current vaccination tier can call to schedule first dose appointments. You can also call to schedule an appointment for testing or with general questions.
Testing through public health is free. An email is required to self-register. If you do not have an email you can self-register using the mock email address: firstname.lastname@example.org (i.e. Jane.Smith@noemail.com). If you register without a valid email address or using the mock email address your results will not be emailed to you. Our health department staff will call you with your results.
