According to ODH Director Dr. Acton, Ohioans are making a difference and flattening the curve. While we are flattening the curve, it is still important that community members keep practicing social distancing and following the Stay-At-Home order. Ohio Department of Health and the CDC recommend wearing a mask when making essential trips and wherever social distancing can be difficult.
Miami County Public Health is now offering some telehealth services due to the COVID19 pandemic. Clinics such as the Reproductive Health and Wellness Program, Well Child Clinic and Prenatal Wellness Center are part of this program. Telehealth will allow some visits to be done over the telephone instead of coming into the office regardless if you have a smart phone or a land line. Please call us at 937-573-3519 or 937-573-3520 to see if your need can be handled over the phone. Medication refills or prescriptions may be available as a curb side service.
MCPH is working hard to keep the community informed on new guidance and will continue to update the community on COVID-19 cases in Miami County.
