About Sierra County Public Health
Sierra County Public Health (SCPH) activities lay the groundwork for healthy communities. They protect us from diseases and injury and help us change behaviors that could cause us harm. SCPH ensures healthy communities by preventing epidemics. It locates and treats the contacts of persons possibly exposed to tuberculosis and other communicable diseases, limits the spread of food-borne outbreaks, and provides vaccine to children and adults, including children without insurance. Sierra County Public Health Emergency Preparedness staff implements emergency health messaging, assists in opening shelters, opens mass vaccination centers and facilitates collaboration with health care and medical first responders.
