Trumbull Health Dept ImageThe Trumbull Health Department (THD) serves as the official local public health entity for the Trumbull, Connecticut community. THD is committed to improving the quality of life for all it serves through the promotion of health, prevention of disease, and by assuring a safe and clean environment for our residents.

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) created a short film about the vital and heroic role of public health.

The THD's overall role is to protect and promote the public's health through people, prevention and partnerships.  As a local health agency, our responsibilities include the enforcement of the Connecticut Public Health Code and mandated services as prescribed byCGS Section 368e (municipal).

  • Local health agency ordinances and regulations may be more stringent than the State’s mandates, however they cannot be less stringent or in conflict with state regulations and statutes.
  • Town charters and local board of health by-laws may include for provisions of services that exceed the basic public health program.
  • Local health agencies have the legal authority to levy fines and penalties for public health code violations, and to grant and rescind license permits (such as for food services establishments or septic systems) and to establish fees for their services.

    Tick Encounter Resource Center Tick Identification Chart

    Having a Tick Tested for Lyme Disease: The Health Department accepts ticks at our office, which we send for testing to the State of Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station. They will test the tick to see if it carries the spirochetes that cause Lyme Disease, Anaplasmosis, and Babesiosis. Please note: The CT Agricultural Experiment Station only tests engorged deer ticks.

    Ticks should be brought in alive (if possible) in a zip lock bag or sealed containers (not in Vaseline, oil or other substances) to the Health Department Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm.  There is a $3.00 fee.
