April 5 – 11 is National Public Health Week. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown how impactful public health services and programs are to community members. Whether they’re performing socially distanced home visits with families, taking calls on the COVID-19 resource line or running a vaccine clinic, Bloomington Public Health staff are fulfilling the mission to engage the community in promoting, protecting and improving the health of all.

The 2021 National Public Health Week theme is “Building Bridges to Better Health.” People may be physically distant from each other, but it’s more important than ever to come together. Making communities safe is the top priority of all public health departments and divisions. COVID-19 has made that even more important. In the midst of the most challenging public health crisis of our lifetimes, it’s more important than ever to celebrate public health. To learn more about Bloomington Public Health’s work, visit
