Foodborne Illness

Consult your physician immediately if you think you may have a foodborne illness from eating at a restaurant within Island County. 
To report an incident, please call Public Health staff at (360) 678-8276.  Be prepared to give a complete three day food history and all symptoms of illness.  Foodborne illnesses take an average of 8-12 hours, or longer, to develop.  The three day food history is vital to track down the possible causes of illness.
