Clarke County Environmental Health Services oversees the inspection of certain providers for the safety and well-being of Ringgold County residents.

Tanning Beds and Tattoo Parlors

Local inspectors make sure that the equipment used in the tanning beds meet health and safety guidelines and that the operators are knowledgeable in the procedures to help protect the patrons from skin damage.

Tattoo parlors are checked for sterilization and sanitary conditions.  With the increase in blood-borne diseases such as HIV, it is imperative that these operations are following strict public health safety rules and regulations.

Swimming Pools and Spas

Ever wonder why there is so much chlorine in swimming pools and spas?  It is required to protect people from transmitting and contracting disease through the water. The Sanitarian conducts a comprehensive inspection of all public swimming pools and spas. Items such as water quality, disinfection, testing, construction, safety, and lifeguard certification are all scrutinized on an annual basis to provide a safe environment for the public.
