MASON CITY – The Cerro Gordo County Department of Public Health has found a temporary location to resume their services. The Health Department’s immunization clinic and STD/HIV clinic will be providing services at the Community Health Center located at 404 N Federal Ave, Mason City (West of Fareway) starting Tuesday, May 28, 2019. The Immunization Clinic will be open Monday-Friday from 10AM-Noon and 12:30-4PM. Office hours for other Public Health services will be 8am-4:30PM. The Cerro Gordo County Department of Public Health was housed in the Mohawk Square building that suffered a roof collapse over the weekend due to the severe storms that rolled through North Iowa.

The Public Health Nurses and Home Care Aides will also be operating from the Community Health Center location. Public Health Nursing staff will be in contact with home care clients regarding their care schedule. For other home care questions, please call 641-425-2514.

    This is too bad. If the supervisors had listened when they were told they needed a new building we wouldn’t be in this mess.
