Board of Health

Offices remain closed to the public until further notice.  All staff continues to be available by phone fax and e-mail.

The Health Department is committed to keeping our community informed about the latest developments on the Coronavirus (COVID-19).  I would ask you all to please follow the preventative health measures that have been put in place. Some examples are to; maintain social distancing, only go out when necessary, avoid crowded places, wear a face covering while in public, and frequent hand washing. These efforts will help meet and defeat this challenge before us. 

We will get through this together, and only by working together can we eliminate this threat.  Thank you all and stay safe,

Matthew Armendo, Director
Westport Board of Health
