The Sharon Health Department enforces state and local regulations, provides health communications to residents and businesses, and develops health protection programs to ensure the health and safety of town residents. Core responsibilities of the Health Department include infectious disease investigations and enforcement of regulations related to food safety, housing, children’s camps, public beaches, lead paint, water quality, and other environmental concerns. A public health nursing program makes core disease prevention services—immunizations, blood pressure screening, and health consultations available to all residents. Emergency planning for infectious disease events, natural disasters, and other health threats is carried out in collaboration with public safety partners and other state and local public health agencies. The Health Department serves the Sharon Board of Health, which is authorized under MGL c.111, s. 31 to address public health concerns in the town.
