Calaveras Sups Proclaim Next Week As "Public Health Week" 

The Calaveras County Board of Supervisors voted to officially proclaim next week as “Public Health Week.”  County health officer Dr. Dean Kelaita gave the Board a quick snapshot on the state of local health, and the importance of the public health services the county provides.   By declaring Public Health Week, the supervisors are recognizing the fundamental role of the state and local health departments, schools, community based organizations and health care providers.  Public health groups help protect against the spread of disease, protect against environmental hazards, prevent injuries, encourage healthy behaviors, ensure food and water safety, and respond during natural disasters.  The public health department in San Andreas will have an open house on Wednesday, April 4th, from 2-4pm, so the community can come and see all of the various aspects being addressed by the county’s public health department.
