Data & Reports
The mission of the Holmes County General Health District is work with the community to protect and improve the health and environment of those who live, work, and play in Holmes County.
One of the ways the Health District achieves this mission is to regularly monitor the health status of people to identify community health problems. We have provided a list of data and statistics available on the health status of the community, as well as links to more information you may find useful.
On this page you will also find the minutes from the Board of Health meetings for the last 2 years. You may also (during regularly scheduled business hours) come into the Health District and request to see these and any other minutes we have on file; dating back to the 1970’s.
