ST. CHARLES COUNTY, MO – Improvements to the St. Charles County Department of Public Health facility at 1650 Boone’s Lick Road in St. Charles are near completion, and the building will reopen to serve the public on Dec. 23.

- Increased clinic space.
- Enhanced disease prevention barriers to protect clients and staff.
- An on-site lab to accommodate testing procedures.
- Improved capacity to reduce the spread of infection.
Public services will close temporarily from Dec. 17-22 to facilitate the move into the facility but will reopen on Dec. 23. Appointments may be scheduled by calling:
