About the Board of Health

The Board of Health sets county-wide public health policy, enacts and enforces local public health regulations, and carries out other duties of local boards of health specified in state law. These duties, which are enumerated in RCW 70.05.060, include enforcing state public health statutes, preventing and controlling the spread of infectious disease, abating nuisances and establishing fee schedules for licenses, permits and other services.

The Board of Health meets on the third Thursday of each month, starting at 1:00 p.m. The meetings are hybrid, held on Zoom and in King County Council Chambers, unless otherwise specified. Public comment is welcome to be provided on Zoom or in Chambers.

Joy Carpine-Cazzanti, Board Administrator
