COVID-19 (“Coronavirus”) Information and Resources

Health officials are currently taking steps to prevent the introduction and spread of COVID-19 (“Coronavirus”) into communities across the United States. You can play an important role in this effort. Through collaboration with our local health departments, we are asking elected officials, appointed county officials, community leaders, etc. to disseminate the attached information about the disease and its potential transmission into their community.

Additional information on the Coronavirus, including resources for health care workers, community and faith-based organizations, etc. can be found on the Portage County Health District website at www.portagehealth.net, the Ohio Department of Health website at: https://odh.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/odh/home, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website at  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/index.html. For general questions about COVID-19, call the Ohio Department of Health call center at 1-833-4-ASK-ODH. The call center is open 7 days a week from 9:00am-8:00pm.
