Health Fairs and Youth Health Fair Update

In March, we made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s community Health Fairs, with hopes to reschedule later in the Spring or Summer. Unfortunately, as we now approach June, we are still unable to reschedule these important events due to crowd size and event restrictions, social distancing requirements, and the uncertainty of just where we are with the COVID-19 outbreak within our state.

This means that our Youth Health Fair, normally held in June, will also have to be cancelled. Please understand this is hard news for us to share; especially as we begin to see businesses opening back up and we all yearn for a sense of normalcy. We know how important these events are to our county, but we must do our part to keep our communities and our staff safe.

The same staff that bring the Health Fairs to our towns around the county are the ones that take care of you in our hospital and clinic. We still hope that we will be able to reschedule our Health Fairs for late summer or fall, but at this time we are unable to say that with any certainty of when.

Please stay safe and healthy!
