Welcome to the Delaware County Board of Health Web Page

On April 7, 2021 Delaware County Council appointed five members to the Delaware County Board of Health. The appointments were made as part of a strategic plan to create a County Health Department, slated to open January 2022. Creating a Board of Health is a pre-requisite by the Pennsylvania Department of Health in order to be recognized as a County Health Department.

The Board of Health is responsible for formulating rules and regulations for the prevention of disease, the prevention and removal of conditions that constitute a menace to health, and for the promotion and preservation of public health. Rules and regulations formulated by the Board of Health must be approved by County Council.
