Effective Nov. 25, services will be available by appointment or unavailable for a three-week period, until Dec. 16.

Clinical Services:
• Clinical services will continue to be available to clients by appointment only, including Family Planning Services, the Sexual Health Clinic, and the Southern Nevada Community Health Center.

Environmental Health
• Walk-in environmental health services are unavailable but will remain available via telephone and online.

As cases continue to increase, the Health District urges the public to take steps to protect themselves and others, including those most vulnerable to the impacts of COVID-19.
