The Department of Public Health and Social Services (DPHSS) has announced that the Division of Environmental Health’s Processing Center Section (PCS) has re-opened for the issuance of Health Certificates at its temporary location in the Northern Community Health Center, Dededo. The hours of operation are 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Until the Processing Center Section is fully operational, the section can only accept new applications at this time. Thus, Health Certificates that expired on November 27, 2019, and days thereafter, will be honored until such time the renewal applications can be accepted for processing.
