Last updated 3/31/2020 at Noon
Beginning Monday, March 30, the Will County Health Department will be continuing operations but closing its doors to both clients and staff. “For the safety of our clients and staff, and due to the number of Coronavirus cases we are working on, we have decided it is safest to work remotely,” said WCHD Executive Director Sue Olenek.
In addition to the WCHD main building at 501 Ella Avenue in Joliet, WCHD staff at 323 Quadrangle Drive in Bolingbrook and 5601 W Monee-Manhattan Road in Monee will also be working remotely.
The Community Health Center locations at 1106 Neal Avenue in Joliet, and 323 Quadrangle Drive, Suite 335 in Bolingbrook, will continue to see patients. If patients do not have an appointment, they are asked to call 815-727-8670 ahead of time. They will be screened at the door, and evaluated on whether or not an appointment is deemed necessary for that day.
The Health Department will continue to respond to the Coronavirus situation, with the Epidemiology staff continuing their work from remote locations as well.
Residents in need of essential services can contact the Will County Health Department answering service at 815-727-8480.
The Will County Health Department will also continue to operate their COVID-19 Hotline, which can be reached at 815-740-8977 for general information about Coronavirus. New information and guidance are added daily, so please visit willcountyhealth.org, cdc.gov, and dph.illinois.gov.
