Public Health

You can make a difference in the health of your family, your neighbors and your community by staying current on public health and local air quality alerts and reporting communicable diseases. Up-to-date immunizations for both children and adults also help protect everyone’s health and avert the spread of life-threatening diseases.

A more recent serious health hazard is the West Nile virus, carried by mosquitoes. Dead birds found with no evidence of trauma are one indicator that West Nile virus may have reached Central Puget Sound. To report dead birds in Snohomish County, e-mail or call 425-339-8720.
