Safe re-opening procedures in place at OKIB facilities

Health Department and OHS staff develop safe reopening procedures and we need your cooperation.

OKIB offices are now open; however, the office doors will be locked and visitors and guests will require an appointment to visit the offices.

We will do our best to provide you with assistance over the phone, or we will arrange an appointment for you.
