Boone Co. Health Department Services Suspended

All services offered by the Boone County Health Department have been suspended following an investigation from the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources.


Findings from the onsite evaluation by a Bureau for Public Health quality assurance monitoring team determined that the Health Department did not have written policies or procedures for infection prevention, hand hygiene, or environmental cleaning.


The Boone County Health Department was also found inadequate in regards to personal protective equipment.


The Boone County Board of Health had also failed to hold regularly scheduled meetings and in the report, officials were told the medical director had not been to the facility “since March.”
