Curry County is expected to transfer the remainder of its public health services to the Oregon Health Authority on July 1, according to a June 17 press release from OHA.

The state assumed some statutorily required public health responsibilities as of May 2, after the county decided to hand over public health back in April. As of July 1, OHA will take over the remainder of public health services in the county, including:

  • Monitoring communicable diseases and controlling outbreaks, including the COVID-19 pandemic response.
  • Ensuring access to safe drinking water.
  • Ensuring access to WIC services.
  • Licensing and inspecting food, pool and lodging facilities.

OHA will host a virtual town hall from 5:30-6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 22 to provide more detailed information about the transfer, and allow Curry County residents to ask questions.
