More changes are in store for Waynesboro-Augusta Health Department customers.

Effective July 20, all clinical services offered at 211 W. 12th St. will end – as the Shenandoah Central Health District seeks to relocate and/or renovate the facility.

A reopening date is planned for the spring of 2023.

“With our community in mind, we sought out a new location that will provide greater accessibility and convenience for our customers and patients,” said Elaine Perry, acting director of health for the Central Shenandoah Health District. “We look forward to sharing more information once further details can be finalized.”

Health Department staff will still be available through August 12 at the Waynesboro-Augusta Health Department for inquiries regarding vital records or other documents.

During this transition, arrangements for clinical services can be made with the Staunton-Augusta Health Department, located at 1414 N. Augusta St. in Staunton.

Some services previously offered in Waynesboro will continue at the Staunton-Augusta Health Department starting July 21.

These services include:

  • vaccinations, including COVID-19 vaccinations,
  • long-term services and supportive screenings,
  • free distribution of condoms,
  • screening and treatment for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) (resumes August 1) and
  • civil status registers.

All customers and patients who may be affected by this transition were notified earlier this month, according to the CSHD.

Questions regarding this transition can be directed to (540) 332-7830 or [email protected].
