How to Appeal Orders Issued By Local Health Directors:
There are two ways to appeal Local Health Director Orders:
(1) You may appeal the Order by calling the Department of Public Health within three business days of receipt of the Order at one of the following numbers:
(860) 509-7566 or (888) 891-9177
If you call on a weekend or after business hours, it is sufficient to leave a message with your name, number and a description of the Order you are appealing.
If you appeal the order by calling one of the telephone numbers listed above, the telephone call must be followed up with a written notice of appeal that must be received by the Department within ten days of the telephonic notice.
PLEASE NOTE: It is not sufficient that the written notification be postmarked within ten days.
It must be received by the Department within ten days. Delays caused by the Post Office will not excuse failure to comply with this requirement.
The written notice of appeal following the telephonic notice may be delivered to the Department in person, by facsimile, or by first class or certified mail.
The Department’s address and facsimile number are provided below.
(2) You may also appeal the Order by delivering your written appeal to the Department of Public Health within three (3) business days of receipt of the Order.
