Message to Wallowa County Public Health Clients and Partners

The Wallowa County Board of Commissioners voted unanimously in April 2018 to transfer its local public health authority to the state agency. As a result, Oregon Health Authority now provides limited public health services in Wallowa County. By law, the county was required to pass an ordinance before the transfer could happen.
