As COVID-19 continues to impact us locally, we will be closing all Public Health Madison & Dane County offices to the public effective Thursday, March 19, 2020.
Although this decision was not arrived at easily, it is a decision that we needed to make. We are prioritizing preserving the health and safety of our staff and clients while continuing to maintain our ability to provide essential services, including our response to COVID-19.
We will continue providing services through alternate avenues, detailed below, but at this time we are reducing our direct contact with the public.
Regular services will continue. Specifically:
Public Health Madison & Dane County works to prevent or minimize risks to human health and the environment caused by environmental hazards.
Information on our work in investigating environmental spills and how to report an incident.
Information and resources on common sources of indoor air quality problems: asbestos, carbon monoxide, environmental tobacco smoke, household chemicals, mold, dust, radon, and woodburning.
Information on lead poisoning and our lead poisoning prevention services.
Information on how to safely dispose of used needles, syringes and other sharps, and on our Needle Exchange Program.
Information on PFAS in our environment, and the effects they can have on health.
Dane County Clean Sweep provides a place to bring hazardous household materials for their safe disposal.
