Furthermore, due to the departments engagement with the local, state and federal COVID19 response activities, Environmental Health Services may not be able to process you permit request with in a respectable timeframe. If our response responsibilities/activities continue to ramp upward field inspections will be determined based on priority, such as failing systems first before new construction. The department’s field services may even stop if necessary to fulfill the other needs of our community’s response.

Please referred to our Web Site: updates.

We highly recommend you submit all your permit applications via email or our Web Site at EH@Sanilachealth.comto assist us in limiting the number of individuals visiting our offices. Currently the Health Department is seeing clients by appointment only and those with appointments must be health screened before entering the premises.

We will do our best to keep you up-to-date on this situation, however, please keep in mind the COVID19 Pandemic Emergency Response is a very fluid situation.

Thank you for your patience during this State of Emergency.

CDC is responding to an outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus that was first detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China and which has now been detected in 37 locations internationally, including cases in the United States. The virus has been named “SARS-CoV-2” and the disease it causes has been named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”).

On January 30, 2020, the International Health Regulations Emergency Committee of the World Health Organization declared the outbreak a “public health emergency of international concern” (PHEIC). On January 31, 2020, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex M. Azar II declared a public health emergency (PHE) for the United States to aid the nation’s healthcare community in responding to COVID-19.

The best way Michiganders can stay healthy is to wash their hands often with soap and water, cover their coughs and sneezes, stay away from people who are sick and stay home if they are not feeling well.
