To protect the health of clients, patients and staff, the Knox County Health Department (KCHD) is temporarily limiting several services during the COVID-19 pandemic.

A few of the changes include, but are not limited to:

  • KCHD’s Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program is conducting services by phone.
  • The Dental Clinic will be open for dental emergencies only.
  • In-person issuance of birth certificates is suspended; requests are by mail only. Vital Records will continue to issue certified copies of death certificates to funeral directors, cremation permits and burial transit (out of state) on a walk-in basis.
  • The Community Health Access and Navigation in Tennessee (CHANT) program will continue to receive referrals and will conduct services by phone.
  • The Teague Clinic (405 Dante Road) is currently closed.
  • The West Clinic (1028 Old Cedar Bluff Road) is conducting infant and childhood immunizations by appointment only.
