Beginning Nov. 20, 2023, every U.S. household can again place an order to receive four more free COVID-19 rapid tests delivered to their home by visiting COVIDTests.gov. If you did not order tests this fall, you may place two orders for a total of eight tests. Additionally, before you discard any “expired” test kits you have, please check here to see if the expiration dates of your COVID-19 tests have been extended.

Asbestos abatement site supervisors and asbestos abatement workers must complete initial and refresher training courses in order to be certified by the Department of Public Health (DPH).  Similarly, asbestos consultants are required to complete initial and refresher training courses to be licensed by the DPH.  The providers of these training courses must be approved by the DPH.

The Environmental Practitioner Licensure Program certifies, licenses and regulates environmental health professionals in the Asbestos, Lead, Septic, and Sanitarian disciplines.  The Unit is also responsible for the approval of training courses required for the licensure, certification, and renewal of such licenses.
