The Board of Health

The administration and operations of Hastings Prince Edward Public Health (HPEPH) are overseen by an autonomous Board of Health. Members of the Board of Health include elected officials from four municipalities: City of Belleville, City of Quinte West, Hastings County, and Prince Edward County. In addition, local representatives are appointed by the Province of Ontario as members of the Board.

The Board sets the strategic direction for HPEPH,  and ensures the organization meets the requirements of provincial legislation, as well as the needs of our community.

Board Meetings

The Board of Health typically meets on the first Wednesday of each month from 9:30 to 11:00 am unless otherwise noted. Board meetings are held at our main office located at 179 North Park Street, Belleville.

1) Our offices are temporarily closed to the public to allow us to respond to COVID-19 demands. Phone lines remain open. Please access our media release for more information.

2) Returning travellers must self-isolate for 14 days and contact Public Health if symptoms of COVID-19 develop.

If you have returned from travel anywhere outside of Canada, you must self-isolate for 14 days and immediately contact Public Health or your local health care provider if you develop symptoms of COVID-19. Earlier this month all travellers were asked to self-isolated when they returned to Canada. Effective March 25, the federal government made this isolation mandatory under the Quarantine Act to better protect our most vulnerable citizens. Each of us must make the responsible decision to follow the advice of health authorities. It’s in everyone’s best interest to do everything we can to stop the spread of COVID-19.
