As the territory moves forward with reopening services, many in the community will be seeking to renew or apply for health cards (or food handlers’ cards), which are a requirement to work in the following industries: food service, childcare, beauty, barbers, spas, nail salons and massage parlors.

To obtain or renew a health card or food handler’s card at Schneider Regional Medical Center (SRMC) or at the Myrah Keating Smith Community Health Center (MKS), be aware of these new steps:

 All services outpatient and elective procedures at the Roy L. Schneider Hospital (including lab tests) are done by appointments. The medical facilities are making limited accommodations for walk-ins requiring laboratory services and food handler cards.
