The Clayton County Health District has redesigned its website to be more user- and mobile-friendly. The new site is up at .

CCHD’s public information officer, Vincent Parris, said “Our work is extensive, an so we feel an improved online presence, specifically our website, is the best way to communicate what we do and how we do it. We were looking for a platform that is easy to update, which is especially crucial in our current pandemic. It is more important now than ever that our residents know we are here for them.”

The site offers pages for locations, services, WIC, environmental health, community partners, and an “About Us” section. The home page includes a direct link to free COVID-19 testing information and registration; links to ordering vital records like birth and death certificates; services like adult, child, and community health; and health news relevant to local residents. On the left side of the homepage, visitors can find links to important forms or information about topics like swimming pools, emergency preparedness, mosquitos, HIV, and family planning with just one click.

The whole site also can be translated instantly into dozens of languages, from Afrikaans to Zulu, using a pulldown menu at the top of the home page.

524 Creative, a Marietta-based marketing agency, developed the new site.
