TCHD Hours to change as of Dec. 28, 2020


Vernal, UT Dec. 7, 2020TriCounty Health Department (TCHD) is changing hours of operation to improve our effort to serve for health. As of Dec. 28, 2020, TCHD will be open Monday through Thursday 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.


The new hours of operation is another effort to make public health staff more readily available for public health needs in the tri-county area. The new hours of operation will allow the community to come to us for our programs during more convenient times. 


“If we are open till 5:30 p.m. it allows those that work till 5 p.m. to still come to us if they need a WIC appointment, vaccinations or to drop off water samples etc.” Health Officer Jordan Mathis said. “Opening at 7:30 a.m. will allow earlier start for those that have more time in their morning schedules, vaccines before school starts, environmental health needs on your way to work. This is a way to better serve for health.”


This change will increase the number of hours the department is open to the public by 3 hours per week, 156 hours per year, and equating to the equivalent of almost 4 more weeks per year.  


TCHD will continue to offer the same services, the only change is being available more often for the public.
