City of Corpus Christi withdraws from public health district – Riverside, California

Riverside, California 2021-10-20 09:37:34 –

Corpus Christi City Council resolved on Tuesday night to withdraw from the Corpus Christi-Nueces County Public Health District and establish another health department, the city-county model is “obsolete” and the services of the new department are more efficient. Said that it would be.

The city issued a 90-day notice of withdrawal from the health district, which was established almost 40 years ago. Mayor Peter Zanoni said services in the health district would not be interrupted during that time.

The city’s withdrawal from health districts does not eliminate districts that have primarily provided preventive medical services to poor patients and have played a major role in COVID-19 testing and vaccination.

Judge Barbara Canales of Nueces County and Annette Rodriguez, director of public health, told the Caller Times that they did not notify them before the city made a decision.
