COVID-19 Latest News - Updated August 10, 2020
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Public Health is temporarily suspending appointments for our Travel Health Services program. More information will be shared when these services resume.
In addition to practicing healthy behaviors during the trip, there are steps you can take before you leave that can protect you from becoming sick during and after the journey. Experienced nurses in the Travel Health Clinic will consult with travelers about their medical history and planned itinerary to determine recommended precautions.
In addition to travel-specific recommendations, the Division of Health Services staff urges individuals to be current on all recommended vaccinations.
