SOUTH CENTRAL IDAHO – In response to recent confirmed community spread of novel coronavirus in our district, all South Central Public Health District (SCPHD) Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) appointments will be completed by phone until further notice. The SCPHD office in Bellevue already discontinued WIC clinics starting March 18th, all other SCPHD offices will discontinue in-person clinics starting March 24th, 2020.

There will be no interruption to WIC services and benefits.  WIC staff will immediately be contacting clients who had appointments scheduled in the next couple weeks, and clients are encouraged to call their local WIC office if they have questions. 

South Central Public Health District is running two hotlines for information about COVID-19. One in English at (208) 737-1138, and one in Spanish, at (208) 737-5965. These hotlines are currently running from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.
