Northeast Tri-County Health District will be modifying their hours of operation in the Colville, Newport and Republic offices, effective January 2, 2018.
This schedule modification is for the purpose of extending the hours of service to the public on Monday through Thursday as well as providing services in all departments for a partial day on Friday.
The new hours in the Colville and Newport offices will be:
•Monday through Thursday: 7:30 AM – 4:30 PM, with lunch closure from 12:00 PM – 12:30 PM.
•Friday: 7:30 AM – 11:00 AM
For the past several years, the Colville offices of community Health, administration and vital records (birth and death records) have been closed on Friday. The entire Newport Office has also been closed on Friday. The new schedule is intended to expand the availability of public services by adding an additional half hour of open time each morning This extra time can be used for WIC appointments, permitting services, and vital records service as well as the many other services provided at Northeast Tri-County Health District. In addition, having all departments closed from 12:00 PM – 12:30 PM for lunch creates uniformity and will allow extra time for the public to access the permitting services in the environmental health department. Finally, by extending all services to be open to the public on Friday mornings, the public will have extra time to access those departments that have not been open previously on Friday.
The new hours in the Republic office will be:
•Monday through Thursday, 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM, with lunch closure from 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM.
As always, staff will be available to address emergencies when needed. If you have any questions or need to make an appointment, please contact your local Northeast Tri-County Health District office:
