What FCPH is Doing

Public health nurses and epidemiologists are notifying and quarantining close contacts of all confirmed COVID-19 cases. We continue to quarantine and monitor travelers returning to the United States from China and Europe for signs and symptoms of COVID-19.

We are also:

  • Sharing information and meeting as needed with city, township and village leaders.

  • Communicating and providing guidance to our schools and universities.

  • Participating in frequent calls with the Ohio Department of Health and monitoring all information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

  • Along with our partners at Columbus Public Health, we have sent information to healthcare providers in our area with current recommendations for screening and testing for 2019–nCoV, as well as to EMS providers regarding proper protection procedures.

  • Sharing messaging with partners and the public as it becomes available.
