TCHD Hours to change as of Dec. 28, 2020
Vernal, UT Dec. 7, 2020 – TriCounty 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.
