As of Friday, April 19, 2013, there have been eight (8) cases of measles in Stokes and Orange Counties. Close contacts to these cases have been identified in Chatham and Guilford Counties. The North Carolina Disease Branch along with the Immunization Branch has designated 19 counties as areas to increase surveillance. Randolph is one of those counties. Therefore, anyone who is not adequately immunized for measles can get a vaccination at the Randolph County Health Department FREE of charge. Vaccinations will be given Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. No appointment is necessary. The health department will also hold a special clinic where the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine will be given. This will be Wednesday, April 24, 2013 from 3:00-7:00 p.m. at the Randolph County Health Department, 2222 B South Fayetteville Street, Asheboro.

We want the public to know that they play a vital role in helping our Department in locating parents that fail to comply with their court orders.

The new website allows citizens to report information to our office anonymously.
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community. Randolph County Emergency Services will be hosting a CERT course beginning April 30. The class will meet each Tuesday from 6PM-9PM for 7 weeks.
For more information, or if you would like to register for this training, contact Jared Byrd at email@example.com.
