East Wenatchee, WA – Chelan-Douglas Health District (CDHD) Health Officer, Dr. Francis Collins, and Administrator, Barry Kling, are closing in person services at Chelan-Douglas Health District. This will go into effect starting at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 19, 2020 until further notice.

Due to increasing response efforts of combatting the COVID-19 pandemic, CDHD is reorganizing all of its resources to better protect our communities. In a statewide effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, all businesses and organizations in our community are required to ensure social distancing and other health measures in their operations. It is important that the Health District does the same. We have determined that closing our front counter reduces person-to-person contact and lessens the risk for staff and the public. Accommodations for services include:

Birth and Death Certificates

May be purchased online through the Washington State Department of Health or visit our web site to learn more: Our Birth and Death Certificate form is also available to download on this webpage as well. Customers can print the form and send it to us in the mail along with payment check or money order. Call our office if you do not have access to a printer and we will work with you.
