Both offices of Cowlitz County Health & Human Services will be closed to walk-in traffic, this includes the Environmental Health Unit located in Kelso.
Business that cannot be done online, by phone, or email will be done by appointment or teleconferencing to minimize the possibility of congestion in a shared space and to encourage social distancing.

While our lobbies are closed we will be accepting permit applications, revisions, and other requests through multiple platforms. For more information click on a button below.
