  • inspecting rental housing and accommodations to ensure they meet minimum health standards
  • inspecting tobacco and vaping retailers
  • investigating illnesses and disease outbreaks
  • education on topics including food safety, pool operation and child care health and safety
  • public health information and consultation to businesses and the public
  • providing water quality sampling supplies and consultation for public and private drinking water systems, public swimming pools, and beaches
