Health Department reopening Tuesday in Hopewell

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)-The Hopewell City Health Department reopens this week for the first time in nearly a month.

It closed last month because of weather related damage, mostly from Hurricane Irene.

Department heads worried damage to the roof made it unsafe for clients.

We're told repairs have now been made, and the facility will reopen Tuesday morning.
